    "My favorite story in the book (and one of my all time favorites of any length) is Fredric Brown’s one-pager “Answer.” Just marvelous. Brown is the undisputed champion of the short-short form and this book contains four tales by Brown. If you’re trying short-short science fiction for the first time, this is the book to start with. If you’re already a fan of the short-shorts, don’t think twice. This book absolutely belongs in your library."

    "Father Emilio Sandoz of the Society of Jesus has never considered himself to be a mystic or a saint. His faith is not founded in a "feeling" about God, or even in any kind of love for Him. Sandoz was attracted to the centeredness, the morality of the faith as a mere boy, when he was rescued from the slums of La Perla by a Texan Jesuit priest with a penchant for swearing and an eye for diamonds in the rough. So when first contact is made with an alien world in the neighboring galaxy of Alpha Centauri, and that first contact comes in the form of lovely, wistful, transcendent music, Father Sandoz is astounded and amused and intrigued. But when he and each of his closest friends turn out to have the precise skill sets required to make the journey out to this new world, he is shaken. And when, against all possible odds, Father Sandoz and those dearest to his heart land on that far away alien Garden of Eden just eighteen short months later, he is transported. For the first time, he feels, he has encountered and fallen in love with the Living God."

    "Like most, if not all, of this author's works, this is an excellent science fiction book. It includes an entire trilogy of works, so you won't have to pick up additional books just to gain some closure, though the author's other stories are recommended. The author, a black woman, steps outside of some of the trite parameters that often constrain lesser works of this type."

    "Earth is at war with Draconia, and one planet is kept out of it: Heaven, where both sides bury their dead. But it is not only the dead who are on Heaven: there are also the living, and something in between, an ancient terror whose activities on Heaven are the reason for the Doctor's visit... The books prior to this in Virgin's Doctor Who series were an extension of the TV series (although people would argue about how successful they were). Here, the Virgin New Adventures start firmly establishing their own style here. The book also sees the introduction of the first new companion created for the books - Bernice Summerfield, a professor of archaeology. Benny (as she is known to her friends) stays with the Doctor for a long time, and eventually heads up a series of books and audio plays of her own. The story also explores the Doctor's character, and what regeneration means. Amongst all this, there is a good story to read. Paul Cornell is one of the better writers in the Doctor Who range."

    "Ok first read Vendetta when I was in Middle School, probably when I was in sixth or seventh grade. At the time I was only just getting into Star Trek, and was trying to get as much as I could of it. Vendetta would go on to be one of my favorite books at the time, and was also the novel that would introduce me to Peter David whose work I came to love . Flash forward a couple of years, and I found myself rediscovering my old love of Star Trek thanks to a friend of mine who happens to be an avowed Trekkie. At the same time, I happened to discover that my old favorite book was out on Kindle. In a moment of weakness (brought on by a few bottles of beer, I admit) I hit the 'buy' button and spent the next few days devouring the book. I have to say, I was worried that it wouldn't live up to my memories, but it honestly does! David is an accomplished author and really seems to get the characters he is writing about. Although later episodes and no use would salvation Picard' s feelings towards to Borg, I thought Vendetta did a good job are showing a man recovering from the trauma that occurred to Jim. I was also pleasantly surprised by how Gordi centric a certain subplot was; I had forgotten that specific detail over the years."
