I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Other authors didn't balance everything I loved about the original series - the character development, the humor, the soap opera elements, etc as well. I wasn't into a lot of these, actually, although there were only a couple pages long and sort of 'what if this had been different?' type stories.
It's interesting seeing the characters living off-planet, or in 50s drag races, but I only really truly enjoyed a couple of these and that wasn't enough to save this anthology.
