A great insight into the character of Fred and the story behind how he became the Butcher of Anderson Station: the real story about the station (gasp gasp). Pretty brutal but that's because James S. A. Corey is awesome. Great short story. :)

An example of what we expect in the best of Sci-Fi. It is both technologically and psychologically advanced.

37 pages. 22 of them are the story itself. I liked the original trilogy, but i feel ripped off here. Sure, it was only a couple bucks, but for 22 pages that's still a lot. And, frankly, the story is fairly predictable. This should have been a minor chapter in one of the other books. Don't waste your money on a story barely longer than this review. Spend it on one of his full novels instead.

Adequate short story. It felt as if it may have not made the final cut for the book it supports. I was disappointed that it was not longer. More depth would have made this a better story. As most readers would have already read Leviathan Wakes having an exerpt from said book was a waste of my time.

Fred was in charge of a marine group as they take back a space station from some terrorists. That was a while ago now and now Fred bounces from bar to bar waiting for death until someone grabs him; there are some questions that need to be answered about what happened on that space station.

This is only a 26-page short story -- not a full novel at all. Although it is an interesting beginning, it is woefully incomplete. I wouldn't waste my cash on it.
