Alien Days

This was a solid anthology about aliens in all facets. The story of Ambassador T will stick with me for a very long time. Each story was well written and in most cases, completely original. I loved how no one part of the collection took over the entire book. It was a group of stories by various authors which all had great bits and didn't seem to take themselves too seriously. There is freedom in enjoying a story when you know that it doesn't need to be taken as a part of the whole. I love short stories and some of these could make great movies. Lee Goettl narrated this set of stories and did a fantastic job of it.

This audiobook was given to me at my request for my free and unbiased review.

A little something for everybody

Just like all anthologies with different writers there's some stories that are well done and others that fall a little flat. It's a nice ay to try out authors you might not have heard of and possibly discover one that you love and want to hear more from.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for my own honest personal review.

The truth is out there

A great set of alien based stories. Some are great and some are unique and suited to folks other than me. All were enjoyable and brought something unique to the anthology. Amongst my favorite was a wolf pack encountering an alien, one whose race is spread through the stars by their death on new worlds, some great invasion and battle stories. All told a well rounded anthology with something for everyone and some great twists on the basic, they come from beyond. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Bland Narration

Based on the topic and the high ratings, I began this audiobook with high expectations. I tried to finish it at least five times but found no stories that held my attention over the painfully monotone delivery of the narration, which sapped the stories of any drama or excitement. Perhaps I would have enjoyed this collection with a different narrator or if I had read it on my own. I received this audio book for free in exchange for an honest review.

A Good Collection of Sci-Fi Tales

I requested this title from the "author" and agreed to review it.
I generally don't go for short story collections but thought I would give this a try.
Pros: You get exposure to many writers and their material; You get to shift from one alien setting to another; If you only have a short amount of reading time, you can still get through one of the stories.
Cons: A short story, by it's very nature can't spend the time developing characters and settings in the same way as it can be done in a book; Many of the stories leave you "hanging," although that is usually the author's intention.

Bottom line for me was that I wanted more and was sad when I reached the end.

Nice set of quick stories

There are some clever, fun stories in this anthology. While none of the blew me away, they were all entertaining, and I might go so far as to say a few were thought-provoking. They certainly made my drive to work easier.
