Customer Reviews

12 Short SciFi Stories

I received a copy of this book and chose to leave a review for other readers. Overall this set gets 3.5 stars. If you love SciFi, this is a set of stories you have to get! It is filled with twelve short stories, so that you can read and finish one or two at a time. The variety of authors, storylines, and settings will keep you reading. I even found some new authors (new to me anyways) that I want to read more from. You can't go wrong with picking up this set.
