Not only that, but many book editors don't have the kind of worldly experience that accurately reflects the ethos of the subgenre in which they're working. I'm left with the impression that I actually met these people, out in the real--or unreal--world.
One issue might've been that I didn't love the audiobook narration by Graydon Schlichter and Jennifer Knighton. It was better in some stories than others (maybe their narration style just suited some stories better), but their way of speaking didn't always sound super natural.
Another thing to note, there's virtually no romance in this anthology, if I recall correctly, which can be good or bad, depending on your preferences. One story has a bit of a romance, and there are characters in relationships here and there, but that's about it.
Anyway, here are my standouts:
Q Bits by Lucio Rodriguez - A really interesting and cool idea involving alternate realities and companies using duplicates of people and products from those other realities to save time and money, something I'd never come across before.
Over Flat Mountain by Terry Bisson - Not the most sci-fi of the bunch, but kind of a heartwarming story.
Drive by Eric Miller - I wasn't into it right away, but it had an entertaining character, some fun action and truck technology, and a satisfying ending that made me smile.
Hit/Run by Edward M. Erdelac - My favorite of all the stories! I was immediately hooked by the creepy, horrifying scene at the beginning, intrigued the whole way through, and surprised in just the right way by the ending. This is exactly the kind of short story I like.
Overall not really for me, but a sci-fi short story anthology based on truck driving is a really fun idea, and maybe other readers will enjoy this!
