There's stories in this collection that touch on all of the major book series he's written and provide some interesting insights and connections. While I'm a big fan of the Owner series the short stories didn't grab me as much as the novels did. They're an interesting hint as to the Owner's future and it also reminded me of the adage of sufficiently advanced technology being indistinguishable from magic.
Overall I enjoyed these stories, not quite as much as the author's novels but they were a fine read.
