Tales of the Dominion War

Tales of the Dominion War is an excellent concept marred by spotty execution. Some of the stories, such as “The Ceremony of Innocence Is Drowned” by Keith R.A. DeCandido (who also serves as editor), are very well written and fill in gaps in the overall television series storyline (in this particular case, the invasion of Betazed). Others, such as “Eleven Hours Out” by Dave Galanter take a good idea (the Breen sneak attack on Earth and the Enterprise’s role in the war) and ruin it with truly horrific writing (the “news broadcasts” in particular are an over-used cliche done howlingly bad). As a result of the inconsistent quality (even worse than normal for an anthology), I have to recommend this one only if you can find it in the discount bin.
