Reactions and Reviews

...Alex Rosen's "Meeting at Xanadu" was pretty well done. I'd like to meet a character in a story that's interested in a time period other than our own, though, like the 21st or 22nd century. But then, I guess it's just too big a temptation to pass up, and it really doesn't hurt the story. [1]

Alex Rosen's "Meeting at Xanadu" was a meat-and-potatoes story; not fancy, but it has all the basics right....Nomad's "The Last Survivor" was a pretty good story, and fit in with the established facts.[1]

The stories in STARDATE #3 were for the most part good. "Meeting at Xanadu" wasn't good, though. I will concede that the author has a good style of writing but the story didn't appeal to me. [2]
