Stargate SG-1/Atlantis: Points of Origin by edited Sally Malcolm

Synopsis:
From Ronon’s pre-culling days on Sateda to Colonel Carter’s first weeks in command of Atlantis, from the fallout of George Hammond’s encounter with SG-1 in 1969 to strange goings-on in Minnesota, Stargate: Points of Origins brings you another fantastic collection of stories from across the Pegasus and Milky Way galaxies. So come step through the gate with ten of our fantastic Stargate authors in our second anthology of Travelers’ Tales: Karen Miller, Jo Graham, Laura Harper, Peter J. Evans, Amy Griswold, Suzanne Wood, Aaron Rosenberg, Geonn Cannon, T. Fox Dunham, and Sally Malcolm.

Review:
I read very few anthologies and short stories. But a set of short stories set in one of my favorite universes is something I had to check out. Each story was just the right length with a great mix of characters and adventures. I enjoyed the SG-1 stories a bit more – maybe because there was more humor or maybe because I enjoy the characters more, after going through 10 seasons instead of just 5. My favorite story involved time travel, back to a younger George Hammond. The stories are well-paced with fresh stories and beloved characters. Fans of SG-1 and Atlantis will appreciate these small glimpses into various eras of the shows.
