The Good, the Bad, and the Merc: Even More Stories from the Four Horsemen Universe (The Revelations Cycle, Volume 8) Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Even more authors and stories. Still the same best-selling universe.
It's the 22nd century. Humanity has taken its first steps into the galaxy, and we've found ourselves in a vast playground of alien races, environments, and cultures. As the newest players on the universal stage, though, our position is readily apparent - we're at the bottom of the food chain.
Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates humans from the majority of the other races. While some of the stories inside deal with mercenaries, others introduce listeners to the other guilds, organizations, and races that make up the landscape of the Four Horsemen universe, as well as providing additional insight into the characters of the mainline novels.
What's it like to be a medic on the beach or to learn how to kill from a mother not your own? Come find out!
Edited by best-selling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, this audiobook includes 16 all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of best-selling authors - and some you may not have heard of...yet.
In a galaxy this big, you'll find that some of the races are good and others are bad, but only the best are mercs!

There are some sixteen short stories of varying size, mostly between a dozen and thirty pages each on multiple themes. Two of my favourites are the ones on Depiks – a race of feral cat-like aliens that specialise in contract assassinations. Another great story features a certain Zeke (Ezekiel Avander) who also figures in some of the Four Horsemen stories. In this collection, we see him during the earlier part of his career, when a slave of aliens biologists working for them in a secret laboratory somewhere in space.
A number of stories are about war, survival and death, grim last stands and fights against the odds which are sometimes won and sometimes not. This theme, well introduced by David Drake’s foreword, runs through the book. As usual with collections of short stories, there were some that I tended to prefer to others. I did not find any of them really weak and all were entertaining in various ways.
Four strong stars for another good collection of short stories.
All of the stories are a great addition to the 4HU and a must-read for any fan.
I'm any event these are all excellent stories that are worthy of the time you will spend reading them.
The Bubba gives this whole effort two thumbs up.

This universe is expanding at a rapid rate, and with a current release rate of at least one book a month, and possibly more, it's going to keep going for a long time.
