Review of “Infinity Wars”

51lrZQjwvzL

Book Reviews – “Infinity Wars” eBook was published in 2017. This collection of short stories are from several different authors. What they have in common is War.

I have to say I was not a fan of this short story collection. I read about half of the stories in the book, then quit. I like military science fiction, but these stories did not grab me. I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I give this short story collection a 2.8 (rounded up to a 3) out of 5.

My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).

The Galaxy’s Edge is a bi-monthly magazine with a collection of short Science Fiction stories edited by Mike Resnick. This is not a new publication (the November 2015 issues is #17), so it may not be news to you of it’s existence. The magazine is available by subscription in a paper version ($6.64 per single issue, or $37.74 per year), or as a Kindle edition from Amazon.

All issues are also available for free if read through your browser. If you enjoy Science Fiction Short Stores, then this is a good way to supplement your reading. It is also a good way to “test out” different authors by reading their short stories.
