Hanging by a Thread

by Gordon Randall Garrett

An interesting premise, and the story goes on pretty well at first, but then gets seriously bogged down in the very specific details of a mechanical problem. The entire story becomes nothing more than a narrative of how to solve a mechanical problem.

The author attempts to throw in a twist at the end, but it's quite lame and adds little to the story.

Happy Ending

by Fredric Brown

Just, well... disappointing. Obviously, a variation on the Hitler theme - a little bit of trying to get into his head. But, it's just not that interesting to read about an insane man stranded on a planet who has no real obstacles to overcome.

Hail to the Chief

by Gordon Randall Garrett

New candidate for the most boring story on this site. Nothing happens, and to call it science fiction is a farce. Avoid this story unless you're trying to fall asleep.

Hall of Mirrors

by Fredric Brown

An oddball story written from 2nd person point of view. The word "you" quickly becomes annoying.

Very little substance to this story, and zero action. Basically, a mind game. Perhaps some folks like that sort of thing, but I found it quite disappointing.
