    " As an anthology, It contains various authors and narrators. Some much better than others, which is as usual in an anthology. If you like SF short stories, you will likely find several memorable entries. A drawback is that each story starts with 2-4 minutes of biography of the author. I would much rather have this available as an accompanying PDF than having to listen to each bio or search for the start. It;s not that I am uninterested, but that learning about the author is quite different from listening to the story and should be better separated. "
