    • A collection of stories about warriors, mostly but not solely sff. One story was fantastic--the rest ranged from mediocre to outright awful."Seven Years from Home" by Naomi Novik. An academic goes to a far off planet that is right on the tipping point of a civil war between colonists who transform themselves to adapt to the planet, and colonists who want to terraform the planet to match themselves. I love the technology used here (bio-transformations are my favorite sf trope, but are so rarely u [...]


    • I received this book as an ARC/promotional copy through the First Reads program.~~~“Seven Years from Home” by Naomi NovikGenre: Ecological-Conscious Planetary Romance SF & Biopunk SFRuth Patrona is sent on a "diplomatic" mission to stir the spirits among the Melidans and instigate them to war against the Esperigans. Her boss, Ambassador Kostas, and she were ordered to maintain a balance of power between the two combatants, until the two parties waste away their strength in a worthless wa [...]


    • I received this book for free through GoodReads First Reads. I liked the collection as a whole. This may have been one of the first collections I've read where I liked all the stories. I wasn't familar with any of the authors except Peter S. Beagle so it was nice to branch out. "Seven Years from Home" by Naomi Novik was about a woman who travels from a government in the galaxy that is hoping to colonize a planet. However, there are two types of people living on the planet: those who seek to use [...]


    • This book was very difficult for me to rate since I liked some of the stories very much and not so much others. All the stories were interesting and well written, but I didn't care much for some of the subjects. “Seven Years from Home” by Naomi Novik - 5 stars - one of my favorite;“Dirae” by Peter S. Beagle - 4 stars - very interesting story line and the way it was presented;“Ancient Ways” by S. M. Stirling - 3.5 stars - this story had potential, but it could have been better (I had [...]


    • These stories weren't as good as the one in the first book but there were two gems in it:The second story - Dirae by Peter S. Beagle - blew my mind. Such an awesome, awesome, awesome story. Yes, the idea isn't something that wasn't done before but still. It's my favourite story from both books.The second one was the novella "Out of the Dark" by David Weber. Buttons pushed! I love the main characters and I love the plot of the novella. Earth being invaded by aliens and the humans fighting back. W [...]


    • An accurate review of this book is hard to do since its several writers involved. Some of the stories I cared more for than others. But the David Weber story was a gem. Gives a whole new perspective on the planet Earth and its inhabitants. Buy the book for that story and get the others as a bonus.


    • Good short stories, not a strong as the first vol but still enjoyable. Stirling's novella on Russia was the best. Skip the Weber entry as it is available in an expanded version as a stand alone novel.


    • All these stories were already in the first Warriors book. The never published before comment is a load of crap. Thankfully it was just a library book and not something I wasted money on. I never saw any indication these were reprinted from the first volume.




    • a great collection of stories collected by a number of great authors, inspired me to read more in the area of fantasy and science fiction


    • This was a first for me, I won this book from GoodReads First Reads. I'm sorry to say that these stories aren't exactly my cup of tea but I thought the majority of them were well written.
