Been a huge fan of the author and this series for ages. Was thrilled when three new books hit the market in a short time. This collection is a good expansion, with stories covering the fall and decades later. I HATED the story set in Tibet. It read like a dime novel SciFi story that was already completed, then edited for a vague tie-in the to the plague. The entire concept did not fit. The technology did not fit. The second story was also a total reach, but at least was true to the past books.
There's plenty of mentions of She and Sea Wolf, and the short concerning NASA and the Dragon capsule was a great backstory.
If you're a fan of the series, yea, get the book. If you've never read the series, read the series. READ IT. Then get this book.
