The Indulgence of Negu Mah

by Robert Andrew Arthur

A moderately interesting story of treachery and revenge. Sci-fi takes a back seat to relationships, so be forewarned on that count.

Industrial Revolution

by Poul William Anderson

While Poul Anderson has quite a good reputation in the sci-fi world, I found nothing extraordinary in this tale. It's hard to put my finger on the disappointment, but I guess the writing just seems lacking in maturity. The characters are a bit contrived, and tend a little toward the melodramatic. Some of the plot elements are just a little shaky.

Definitely worth reading, but just not an outstanding sci-fi story in my opinion.

Infinite Intruder

by Alan Nourse

It's hard to do a time travel story that hasn't been done. This one, in a lot of ways, falls into the same vein as so many others. There are, however, enough differences to make this an interesting read - up until the end, that is. The ending is a total disappointment that just leaves you feeling empty, like you've just wasted your time with the rest of the story.

In the Year 2889

by Jules Verne

Pointless. This story chronicles exactly one day in the life of a man who lives approximately 1000 years from now. It is mildly amusing to see how we have already surpassed some of the science predicted. Otherwise, there is no plot, the characters are typically (for this period of writing) over-the-top and unbelievable, and there is nothing to maintain the attention of the reader.
