Ok, I'm gonna be honest here. I didn't like this book. I'll admit, I don't generally like anthologies at the best of times, but I like this Universe and the other books in the series, so I really hope that this one is simply an aberation to the whole.
Out of the 17 stories, I only LOVED one of them. Five more were good, 6 were ok, and 5 were meh..
Most, if not all of them involved Peacemakers in some way, and I'm not sure if that is influencing my opinion. It's like all the authors looked at Peacemakers, and went "Oh, Shiny! Must include them!"
The standout story for me was Tinkerman. I was hoping that the bounty hunter at the start of the story was going to become part of the story, so it was a surprise when she gets killed. It then became a mystery to be solved as to why Tee is wanted, and why they keep trying to bring him in. Very Western in feel, the show down in the Main street at the end was excellent.
I've yet to buy the next anthology, but I'll get it in Jan 2018 (possibly when the next book gets released as well.
Side note for Chris and Mark: Until you get the Wiki set up and the Compendium/Encyclopedia/Manual done, could you include an appendix of all the different races with a description. Too many of them sound so similar and it gets confusing as to what they look like.
