    One thought on “The Best of Bova: Volume II”

    1. This the review I wrote for Volume 1 and I think it applies to Volume 2.Although I have read a number of Bova's novels, but not a great deal of his short stories. This was a good chance to read some and I must say I enjoyed this collection. I think the shorter format suits him far better than the longer format. At times there is padding in the novels but the shorter format he is more concise. Well worth the read if you like his novels.
