A mix of stories great and less so

(4 stars)

The readings are all very nice, always great to have Greg M. on a collection. The Worshipers is a superb tale. I like Martian Musoc is brilliant. some of the others lacked some interest for me, but in general its a good collection with some very good tales

A nice mix of short sci-fi

(4.5 stars)

Part of LibriVox Short Science Fiction Collection 014. The final story is about a redneck spaceman who ends up with an entire population of an alien planet worshipping him as a God. His plans to convert them to Christianity and improve their technology go surprisingly well. Perhaps it’s too easy ? 51:26
