  • I'm required to disclose by the terms of the giveaway that I won this book in a First Reads giveaway. Unfortunately, I feel like I'll have to spend the rest of the review that I write justifying the five star rating now and that's too bad because this is a book that truly and absolutely deserves it. All the time, I start books of short stories and end up semi disappointed because despite having these titles like "The Year's Best Science Fiction" every other story in it is lame as can be and suc [...]


  • I was looking forward to reading this book for a long time. I first heard about it when the table of contents was announced on SF Signal. That seems to be how I hear about most of the anthologies I read these days. It sounded like a lot of fun, but it was a kickstarted book so I wasn't sure if it would be available at my library. But I put it in my calendar to check when it was supposed to be published and lo and behold, a year or so later, after I checked at the library for a few months, it sho [...]


  • FIVE STARS - The space opera genre has always had a place in my heart. It represents that dashing, daring knight-in-shining-armor side of my ego that hopes someday I'll dive headlong into an adventure of epic proportions. Raygun Chronicles is a masterpiece by editor Bryan Thomas Schmidt featuring twenty-five fantastic new tales by both familiar and indie authors alike to tickle the space-exploration-adventure ego. This isn't your father's sci-fi (exciting as it was), this is a grand new take on [...]



  • Space Opera is one of great original sci-fi subgenres. Authors in this genre try to focus a little less on precise scientific accuracy and instead aim for excessive amounts of fun. It is perhaps the only subgenre of sci-fi that anyone can enjoy. Raygun Chronicles: Space Opera For a New Age states this is “a collection of new tales in the Golden Age style.” I was eager for just such a collection and was granted a review copy by the editor, Bryan Thomas Schmidt.Schmidt has collected 25 tales f [...]


  • Library Journal - RAYGUN CHRONICLES: Space Opera For a New AgeReviewed on DECEMBER 1, 2013 | SF/FantasySpace opera has been likened to Westerns in space, with their emphasis on high action, "science" that is sometimes over the top, and galactic battles between good and evil. This collection of contemporary space opera brings together 24 stories, a poem, and an essay (several of the pieces were first published during the six-year run of Ray Gun Revival Magazine). Authors include Robin Wayne Baile [...]


  • Before I get to the stories in this anthology I have to comment about the poor quality of the printing. The ink was very shiny and if the light was on it directly the glare made the text unreadable which was exacerbated by the thin font.Now to the stories: overall a very weak collection of tales. I was quite surprised by the mediocrity of the work by some of the better-known writers. The majority of these stories were just scenes of battles or meaningless dialogue between flat characters. for th [...]


  • Up Front - I won this book on and was shipped a copy from the publisher with autographs from the authors. One of the things that I love to read are anthologies, such as Analog. This is a pleasant suprise to me because I had no idea that there was a a publication called Ray Gun Revival which had stories about space tales. The closest thing I can think of to describe it would be stories that take place in the Firefly television series.I won't go in depth about this book because it did take me a f [...]
