The writing is much what you would expect from a book in this wonderful series. I enjoyed each of the stories, indeed wanted more. There are parts of the book which are unsuited to audio, so it is not quite as long as it seems. I sometimes had trouble remembering who was who, and how the main story had gone, but usually I was able to remember by the end of the short story.
Kevin R Free, whom I used to think was one of the best narrators, is getting on my nerves by this point. His range of accents and other vocal characteristics is actually quite limited, and as these stories focus on the characters who are usually tangential to the story, he is not using his best voices. His women's women's voices are particularly bad.
That being said, if you love the series as I do, this is a must-have to add to the collection.

Most authors can tell a good story while leaving out most of the details that link the characters and situations for a short period in time, often leaving many bits of information out of the book. This is not one of those authors. This is not one of those books.
Famous science fiction authors create their imaginary worlds and universes where the reader seldom has a basis to judge the imagined space in time. Jay Bell is not one of those authors. He develops characters and situations in recent to current time with all the relationships and scenarios as vivid as the real world on which they are based. This book ties together and clarifies much of the less important but not trivial details that link it all together.
But still the story continues to expand as the next book/audible book arrived just as I started this one. I hope I can find out the importance of a small Missouri college town to the author that made many of the characters what they have become, something like you and me.
