Sci-Fi Series 2 is an intelligent, witty, and thought provoking collection of short stories brought to us by Author Stan I.S. Law. I always enjoy Law’s books. They are full of esoteric thoughts, interesting and scientifically sound concepts and intriguing characters. There is religion, spirituality, science, family, friendship, heartache, passion, attraction, compassion, exploration and so much more. This book contains three unique and original short stories Simulator, Little Angels, and Esperanza. They are all captivating and wonderful. Little Angels brings about some interesting concepts of love, family and population control. Esperanza inspires and values friendship. My favorite (though a hard distinction to make) is Simulator. In this story Acting Ensign Astrid Dwain and Lieutenant Bram Jordan are collecting information for the Galactic Navy when a shocking revelation causes Astrid to break the Law of Noninterference. What happens next is both shocking and healing.  This is another great contribution by Stan I.S. Law. As always I am impressed with Law’s work and look forward to more. I highly recommend it!
