This is a clever collection of short stories that combine somewhat traditional scifi romantica with at least one pet As one might expect the two entries by the recognized authors at least by me are the best but there isn t a bad story here Several are preuels or side stories to existing series while others are one offs There are a few sex scenes and nothing outrageous always powered but love than lustI found at least one new author to follow Proceeds go to a good cause
