Unsure how to rate this
I thought these stories were lackluster until I heard the narrator butcher my favorite short story of all time (Aftermaths by Lois McMaster Bujold). I don't know how the narrator can make such a mess and still get paid. First he pronounced McCaster not McMaster. He made other story name pronunciations inconsistent with any other reader of her stories. most importantly, he drained the life out of it. I barely wanted to finish the story even though I love the original. So then I wondered maybe the rest of these stories are actually quite good and he just butchered them all similarly.
