I won't write an entire review for this collection because it would take me hours to review every story, but I do have to say one thing. This is the first story collection contributed to by multiple authors in which I thoroughly enjoyed every single story. If you're a gamer or a fan of science fiction, then there's a good chance you'll find something in here that you'll really like.
