    Okay

    After reading the glowing reviews, I was very disappointed in these short stories. I just did not see anything particularly exceptional or unique in any of the stories.

    The last story was good l but I am not a big fan of alternate universe tales. The story before would have been good if it hadn't ended so abruptly. More like a teaser to get you to buy the whole novel.

    Two of the stories were just plain BORING! I couldn't get thru more than about 30 pages.

    Great sci fi

    Great stories. Harry Turtledove is one of my favorite authors and the other authors are now my favorites too.

    Some good short stories

    Most of these short stories were quite interesting. The last one by Harry Turtledove about a community in an alternative history time was really compelling - and sobering.

    Great Short Sci-Fi

    Almost all of these short stories are very good. Several are particularly excellent, either for concept such as the opener about predestination, entertainment such as the '30s noir+robots story, or themes such as Turtledove's Shtetl Days. Highly recommended.
