Zero-Option

by Lindsay Brambles

Firstly, please disregard Paul W's comments. Anyone unwilling to suspend their disbelief long enough to get past his complaints really has no business reading a story like this. I mean, we're talking about hyperspace, and light years, and huge spacefaring craft and first contact and he's whinging about "respect for a commanding officer". Please.

Anyway, I found this to be very compelling and quick moving. In the end I wanted to know much much more about the story and the characters, and that is a good thing. A very quick read that won't bog you down but will intrigue.

Egocentric Orbit

by John Cory

Short and very clever. Well worth the 15 minutes it takes to read

Small World

by William F. Nolan

What starts as relatively standard fare, 50's sci-fi packs an interesting twist. Short stories like this area almost always worth the minimal time reader's must inveeset, this is no exception.

Revolution

by Dallas McCord Reynolds

Very interesting premise for a short story. The only issues I had is that it seemed a bit rushed, as though it would have made a better novella w/50-100 more pages. And the painfully obvious love interest pasted in is a bit forced.

Interesting and bite sized though.
