I enjoyed about half of these stories. I recommend

  1. Craphound: it is about an alien who roams around looking for good junk at yard sales, what is not to love.

  2. 0wnz0red: definitely worth the price of admission. You are not in control (of yourself), or are you?

  3. Return to Pleasure Island: Interesting, but I found it a bit slow. I do like books that talk about the private lives of amusement park castmembers.

  4. A place so foreign: Showed some promise. The background is that different time periods have ambassadors to other time periods. I liked the future of 1975. I felt that the end was a letdown though

  5. Shadow of the Mothaship: just didn't grab my attention. There were 2 other stories in the same "world" and I only liked one of them because of a strange character who thought he was the reincarnation of Nicola Tesla. (Home Again, Home Again)
