    I have been working through these megapacks (I have read the first two sci-fi ones, as well as having purchased the Mummy one) and this is the strongest of the lot, by far. Most of these stories were good to great (or at least interesting, like The Man Who Made Friends With Electricity) with only one rather glaring exception. Little Fuzzies (the last story) has to be the weakest entry in any of these books so far. The plot is boring, super predictable, and the thing just goes on FOREVER.

It's like 1/6th of the entire book. Ugh. I found myself skipping pages, which I hardly ever do. What's great about that story (or bad, depending on one's perspective) is that you can skip 12 pages and know exactly what's going on. Ugh. So my advice? Read everything else and skip the last one. You'll be happy you did. It felt more like a pitch for a merchandising deal than a story.

    Some great stories, some not so great I love science fiction. And these anthologies remind me of some great collections I read as a young pre-teen. This third jetpack is not one of the best, but it does have some really good stories, and also Little Fuzzy, which I loved growing up. They are an excellent deal too, at 99 cents per book. Results: although I felt that many of the stories in this particular edition were below standards, there were some I was very glad to have found.

    Good Anthology Beginning the book was fairly disappointing. For every story I liked there was another I didn't and the negatives were outweighing the positives. Until I got to the last story which is told in 5 parts. I could not put it down once I had started and I had to see how it ended. Been a while since i've been so attached to a story like that. That story alone was worth it but there were a few others I enjoyed also. Decent sci-fi read and I only wish I could have my own Fuzzy! Good Anthology Beginning the book was fairly disappointing.

    I really liked this series. What a collection. Loved the Little Fuzzie stories. How do we determine if indiginous animals on other planets are setient. Wouldn't mind adopting one myself. The Sky Is Falling by Lester Del Rey, was a wild ride down the rabbit hole. Though The Gun from Philip K. Dick might be our future if we don't watch it...Good collection. I love these megapacks.

    Little Fuzzy The highlight of this volume is Little Fuzzy a story that sounds like the Tribbles episode from the original Star Trek but predates it by many years. I believe author David Gerrold has said he was totally unaware of this story when he wrote his Star Trek script. He lesrned later after others pointed out the similarities.

    Good variety of stories Better than some of these collections; although time and societal change make some stories very dated, the level of invention and quality of writing was in the whole good. Also I always love the smoking-on-a-spaceship stuff. Fire risk, oxygen depletion, toxicity, pah!

    Very enjoyable experience a refreshing change to the old sci-fi and theater of the mind where you could see good endings and feel good

    Great stories Most of the stories were excellent, a great variety for all. From old to futuristic. My favorite was the final one in the book about the Fuzzies.

    Some good entertaining stories in this collection. Just wish that the editors knew the difference between SciFi and fantasy - note for them - anything involving magic is fantasy.

    Good collection It's a good collection of public domain sf. Yes, most of it is available for free, but paying 99 cents for the curation is worth it.

    Like most other MegaPack books, there are some good stories and some stinkers. This one seemed to tend toward the good stories again.

    Some were good, some were forgettable.

    Little Fuzzy is by far the best story in the collection and on its own would get 5* from me.

    This was a fun little anthology, with some genuinely great stories. I had read “Little Fuzzy” before. My favorite new story was probably Lester del Ray’s “The Sky is Falling.”

    As always this Science Fiction megapack was great, at the moment they are selling this one and others for 49p so if you have not tried one yet and are a SciFi lover now is the time to do so, nice short story's that you can pick up and put down when you want, you usually get around 25 story's in a megapack, so they are as cheap as chips as the well known saying goes. Well done again Wildside Press for putting a good assortment of stories together.

    Most of the stories were fine but I especially enjoyed the Little Fuzzy stories. It was unusual in a collection like this that a serialized set of stories were included, but I'm very glad they were. Most of the stories were fine but I especially enjoyed the Little Fuzzy stories.

    A collection of short science fiction stories. All of them are at least entertaining and a few are even quite good.

    Definitely not as good as the fourth one, but still very good.

    These are fun, cheap, perfect commuter reading, uneven quality, but you can deal with that by skipping a story.

    Other Worlds An interesting selection,some a little dated but classics never the less.With several authors I was not familiar with,that I will look for their work.

    Every story was enjoyable. I was quite surprised that I had only read a couple of them previously.

    Nice collection of short stories to read here and there. Most of them are pretty average, but some really decent. I especially like The Sky is Falling by Lester Del Rey and Little Fuzzy by Beam Piper
