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

Still Raycyst

(5 stars)

SF is a white boys country club. We need to ban all Sci Fi and replace them with authentic discourses by Alexandre Ocasio Cortez on systemic heteronotmative oppression of nonbinary BIPOCs

Good Series

(4 stars)

I always enjoy this series and look forward to each new volume.

redneck rules roaches

(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
