Heir Apparent - Digital Science Fiction Anthology 4, is an anthology of ten original science fiction short stories from professional writers. We are pleased to present in our fourth anthology an exciting collection of new stories from established authors. Heir Apparent includes 10 never-before-published science fiction stories by Robert Lowell Russell, Brandon Nolta, George Walker, Paul Cook, Eric James Stone, Cassandra Rose Clarke, Ed Greenwood, Ronald D. Ferguson, Alex Kane, and Martin L. Shoemaker. Our fourth edition of the Digital Science Fiction anthology series serves up a smorgasbord of terrific stories; however, each story has its own unique version of an heir, and we look forward to hearing from our readers on whether those heirs truly do represent a passing down of some type of human bond or connection. We welcome back Christine Clukey as editor for anthology 4. Thank you for your continued support of Digital Science Fiction. Enjoy.

All of the work showcased in this anthology is worthy of inclusion and readers will be hard pressed to settle on a favorite.

From the extralocal world of My Silent Sayer to the more homespun techniques of Ghost Book each story engrosses entertains and intrigues.

The compilation has a selection of 10 shorts in all and there are three others in the sequence making this number 4.

Sci- fi literary fantasy is a hard genre to get right but the quality and strength of this compilation rests on three simple steps : story , characterization and plot structure . All of the works ignite an emotional response , all have compelling characters and all have well paced flowing plot lines .

Space fiction is however, an acquired taste and not a genre I am easily drawn to , however, I enjoyed the collection and would certainly recommend the book to others .

I read volume two and was extremely impressed with the level of professional writing and loved story after story. Now that I have finished volume four I'm once again happy with my purchase. A few stories stuck out to me as excellent: Father-Daughter Outing by Martin Shoemaker, In the Arms of Lachiga by Alex Kane, and Philosophy by Ronald D. Ferguson to name a few. Thank you Digital Science Fiction for another great collection of stories.

I reserve 5 stars for truly exceptional works. This is a solid entry in a solid series. I enjoyed reading it the 'wee hours'.

Overall, this is a pretty good selection of science fiction short stories: I enjoyed most of them, and they were the perfect companion as I sat in an airport suffering through a long delay. Each one took about ten minutes or so to read, and I could see a couple of them could be the outlines for full-length novels.

I originally picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion, and as I type up this review I see the compilation has reverted to its normal price of 99 cents. You'll get more than 99 cents of entertainment value out of this one, so if you are a science fiction fan and appreciate a good short story I would recommend grabbing this one.

This book of shorts is well written and entertaining. Running the gamut from hard sci fi to a story about werewolves wanting to rule planet.

Nice shorts good read. Read some of them else where but that doesn't spoil the book nice theme trough out. Enjoy your read

Author obscured his ideas with unneeded usage of foul words and images. I think he was going for gritty, but all he did was offend. He might take a lesson from the masters of hard SF who were able to spin tales and create words with ordinary language, well used.
I did not enjoy much but this is probably good for some readers. It reads too much like video war games -- too many violent soldiers and not enough human interaction.
