    1. A collection of stories to celebrate the Arthur C Clarke collection Tales From The White Hart, the posits a group of scientists and writers who regularly drink at The Fountain pub telling stories of exploits that may or may not be true. Told as stories related by drinkers, these are largely tall stories. Generally mildly amusing, the tone doesn't really change through the collection so it becomes a little tiresome. The standout is the final story in the collection, Adam Roberts The 900,000,000,0 [...]

    2. I'm a fan of the sort of rambling shaggy dog story thatArthur C. Clarke told very well inTales from the White Hart and loved this tribute to that.

I would have liked to see more women i [...]

The indiv [...]

    4. Absolutely brilliant. There should be more stories about real ale and science fiction. I didn't rate it because I have a connection with the publisher.

    5. A spread of stories for every sort of sci-fi fan, whether you like hard, techy SF or a gentler touch. The authors all have fun with the concept, though some are more entertaining than others.
