Hello Guys,

I just finished Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. 'Twas highly good. I have a gripe though, and that is most of the stories seem unfinished. Like they're only fragments of some much larger story and we only get a tiny snippet. "To Know All Things That Are In The Earth" written by James Maxey is a good example of that. It's a story of the Biblical end of the world, but it reaches a point where the reader thinks the angels that come to Earth aren't actually angels, but perhaps aliens. And then it stops. Disappointing.

Very few of the stories were bad. "Eviction Notice" was ultimately crappy, even though it started strong.

The main thing I didn't like in the book was all the hero worship for Orson Scott Card by the various authors. :urgh: :sick:

I think "Dream Engine" by Tim Pratt was my favorite. It's actually a complete story, and a it was a fun ride.
