Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Lots of great stories here. Time dilation in space travel, societal norms, mental impact of the act of destroying sentient beings and the costs of war, all come together in Shumak's HUNTER. We so seldom address the problems of time and space travel together, and how it impacts the lives of those involved. I was fascinated. Easily my favorite in a volume of well-written stories.
So far, I've read Zach Chapman's "Queenpin of the Wastes", and found it to be incredibly relevant to some of the issues that Western women face today now more than ever: trivialization, cyberbullying/stalking, and harassment at the hands of boys/men seeking to thrive in a hypermasculine world. I think "Queenpin of the Wastes" is a forward-thinking commentary on the past, present, and future of women in the gaming industry and gives me hope that more boys/men will step up to be allies for their girl/women friends in all industries.

E.J. Shumak’s story, Time of the Hunter, will leave you pondering the problems of the future today as he takes you on a journey to the stars. Time dilation will change everything for those who will one day travel the stars, but don’t worry, EJ, will get you back to Earth quickly.
Among many fine pieces, Ej Shumak's Time of the Hunter is a standout. Not only are the plot and characters intriguing and complex, the story challenges many assumptions about the future. Fast paced and elegantly written, Time of the Hunter is a pleasure to read. Thank you Mr. Shumack.

I read EJ Shumak's "Time of the Hunter," included in this anthology. What a poignant story of humanity and loss, set amongst enemy bugs, war, time travel, and AI. A good, quick read with all the elements of sci-fi without forgetting the human experience.
