The SFR Brigade Mid-Summer Blog Hop just ended and as it did SFR Brigade published their first book of short stories titled Tales from the SFR Brigade.  This is a free ebook.  Click on the link above to get your copy.  I downloaded and read immediately and loved every story.

World building:  These are short stories so there is not a lot of time to world build.  In spite of that each author manages to include just the right amount of information about the world their readers need.  All are stand alone with the exception of Linnea Sinclair’s story.  The back-story is in Games of Command

Characters: There are some well drawn characters in each story. After meeting them in the short stories I would love to see them in full-length books or novellas.

Writing:  These are some exceptionally well-written short stories with short but well developed plots.  After finishing the entire volume I was ready to go back and re-read every story again.

I do have one suggestion.  I would have liked a clickable 
Table of Contents.  As I read I bookmarked the start of each story so I could easily find them again.

This was a great idea and I hope that there will be future volumes.  There was a wealth of writing talent in Tales from the SFR Brigade.  I look forward to seeing more from each author.

Tales from the SFR Brigade is an ebook.  Remember it is free so be sure to download and read.

SFR Brigade published Tales from the SFR Brigade in June of 2013.
