    Dynamite anthology

    The premise of this short story collection is quite simple yet very clever. These tales focus on employment in outer space in the distant future when the solar system and beyond are settled and are short hops away. The fourteen tales that make up this anthology are fun to follow as the audience, for the most part, will believe in the various worlds, species, and especially the assorted jobs. The want ads that open up each story are enjoyable in of themselves as they put the space twist to typical employment opportunities whether they are minimum wage custodial workers, professional blue-collar skills or office work.<P> The SPACE INC. collection entertains the audience who will finish the book and wonder with their present skills what job could he or she hold in outer space. As for moi, telecommuting as an intergalactic book reviewer using Babel to translate critiques into Martian (thrillers), Venusian (romance), or Jovian (epic fantasy) seems obvious so where is that want ad?<P> Harriet Klausner
