Review: Points of Origin (SG-1/SGA Travelers’ Tales #2) edited by Sally Malcolm

Points of OriginFavorite story: “Precognition” by Jo Graham touches on the after-effects of one of my favorite episodes of Stargate SG-1, when our heroes travel back in time and are aided by a younger George Hammond. It was lovely to see his progression through the years, taking us to the man we know and love who guided the Stargate Program with such a steady hand. I especially enjoyed the historical twist about some other characters thrown in, which I decline to spoil here.

Story I’d love to see expanded into a novel: “Cotermino(us)” by Peter J. Evans started off really weird. Like the author was trying too hard to evoke the narrative of what we might see on screen rather than reading. But as things progressed, I got sucked in by the possibilities of what might be happening. The final scene packed an emotional punch, and I’d read an entire novel about this story, or what takes place next.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
