    1 thought on “Final Ships in the Neighborhood

    1. An engaging idea, expertly executed!Eighteen talented sci-fi writers all launch their stories from the same place. The book’s editor asked a talented group of writers to create stories set in the future during an apocalypse. All stories were required to include reference to an appointment, a mysterious ship, and a rock or asteroid. That’s where the similarities end and the intriguing variations begin.Each story takes about ten minutes to read, and I consumed them all like a bag of potato chi [...]

    2. I love the Giant Tales Anthologies, there is never a bad story. All of the tales were intriguing, emotional, funny and well written. It's amazing how given the same themes, settings and highlights, the stories can come out so very different. Love it!

    3. I loved this book. These stories were so exciting and diverse and yet all the authors managed to maintain a theme that complimented the collection as a whole. I keep trying to pick a favourite story, but I think I might have to reread them all a few more times first. Brilliant. Highly recommended.

    4. The four stars is based upon my top four stories here. I'll just comment on these four stories, for now.One story was an intriguing twist on a parallel universe where a giant spheroid full of refugees from a newly emerging apocalypse escapes the Earth. I thought that was cleverly written, and you wouldn't see the end coming, and I'm not going to reveal it here. But clearly, the narrator now sees things that she thought would never happen--a reversal of fortune and how time travel has brought upo [...]

    5. I love short stories, but the concept, the presentation of this collection made it unique and more intriguing than most. Eighteen different stories with a similar theme but not one is like another. Wonderful variety. They were all fascinating. I’d hoped to find a favorite, but that was impossible. Liked them all. I think you will, too.With that said, I’d like to add that the last story was a great one to end with. Oh, yes, the story included an alien space craft looming above the earth, but [...]

    6. Final ships is a really cool book of Tales. It’s a collection of various short stories about the Apocalypse each written by a different author. They don’t all tie together as a single story but more various characters throughout the world and what happened in their life during the Apocalypse. I love the idea, enjoyed reading each short story and getting a small taste of so many talented authors work. The stories aren’t all action, adventure or zombies but each tale is different from action [...]

    7. Boldly ImaginativeFinal Ships In The Neighbourhood is a generous collection of 10-minute stories written by different authors. I enjoyed reading every single one.If the daily grind has left you feeling down and you need to escape into another world then this is it. Boldly imaginative throughout, this book is exactly what I would expect from a sci-fi/fantasy collection. It will have you racing through the pages as you devour story after story with plots that twist, spiral and come together again [...]

    8. As one of the Final Ships 18 authors I was privileged to contribute ‘From Behind the Sun’ to this anthology. Not only were many of the stories exciting and intricate, they stretched my imagination in different directions from a single set of parameters. Participating in this adventure with my fellow writers, many of whom I’ve shared stories with over the years, I’ve expanded my ideas on what makes an enticing story.

    9. Undiscovered GemsFirst, a disclaimer: One of my short stories, “The Shooting Star,” is included in Final Ships in the Neighborhood. That said, I’m very happy to report I enjoyed reading the book! The authors present a range of stories from scientifically accurate sci-fi, flights of fancy, comedy and disaster-drama that alternately pulled me deeper into the stories or had me laughing. Some are good. Some are fantastic. All are entertaining. There are some real gems here.

    10. This is a great collection of short stories. I enjoyed how each author started with the same premise but was able to create such a unique spin with each story. I loved them all so much I refuse to name a favorite.
