  1. I have to ‘fess up that I finished reading the first one just a few days ago. However, I loved it! My main problem with the book was that some of the most highly rated stories were the ones that didn’t work for me. But by the end, I had found much to love, and I’m definitely on board for the second one.

    I don’t have the TOC for the first book in front of me, but from memory, I don’t think there’s a single duplication of authors. Still, the TOC is enticing :)

  2. From Wilson to Wright – awesome. Great to see Sterling and Williams back. The name roster looks solid platinum! You show Lou Anders how it’s really done.

  3. Hi Peter – I’m glad you enjoyed New Space Opera. I’m very happy with New Space Opera 2, and hope you enjoy it as much. – J

    Hey Tero – No knocking Lou, now :) He’s a friend and we’re working together on a book as I write, so you’ll see that together we make a pretty unbeatable team. I also think Fast Forward 2 is a terrific book. – J
