    • A collection of short stories from Elizabeth Moon, author of the acclaimed The Speed of Dark and the awful Paksenarrion series. Like her novels, this is a mixed bag of scifi, fantasy, and straight military tales; equally like her novels, the stories range from good to dreadful. The Ladies Aid and Armory Society stories (about a group of female guards) are funny, though one of them really bothered me. (Why on earth would courtly ladies in a medieval society be concerned with having perfect abs an [...]


    • Anthology.1. If Nudity Offends You. Louanne sees that a neighbor has been plugged into her trailer siphoning electricity after she receives a larger than normal bill. When she confronts the woman, she notices a note that says to not ring the bell is nudity offends you. The woman is nude and stinky. Her husband brings her more than the bill is worth and the next day they are gone. I have no idea what this story means. Confusing. **2. Gift. Dall is leaving home. I don't know how old he is but they [...]


    • Elizabeth Moon is known for radically different forms of fiction. Her hard science fiction stories, while often having a tinge of humor, are normally serious works. Her fantasy novels are serious, but her fantasy short stories are infamous for their goofy humor, especially the stories done for the "Chicks in Chainmail" series of anthologies. This book runs the full spectrum of her styles, ending with the best science fiction cheese story of all time. No, really, it's about the hazards of interst [...]


    • A bit of a mixed bag.A mixed bag indeed. Stories vary greatly in tone, context, genre and setting. As such this anthology by Elizabeth Moon contains fantasy, historical, sci-fy and contemporary stories. It will depend entirely on you personal taste with stories will resonate with you and which will miss their mark entirely. So overall some stories will HIT while others will MISS.In short: If you're interested in reading a reading a collection of wildly varying stories with all kinds of subject t [...]


    • This collection of short stories by Elizabeth Moon has made me ever a bigger fan of hers.I loved the Vatta story, and also the Ladies Aid & Armor Society stories. Now I will be adding the "Chicks in Chainmail" anthology to my to-read list without a doubt.The mix and balance if fantasy and sci fi stories was nice. I really liked this book, it was a very good read.


    • I enjoyed most of the stories. The Ladies Aid stories were fun, and I appreciated that there were four of them in the collection. I couldn't finish "Tradition."


    • Like any short story collection, some stories are better than others, but especially in this case what is "better" may change differ person to person depending on your tastes. Elizabeth Moon is a strong writer, and this book really showcases her range.

    • Moon Flights is an excellent collection of short stories. I think my favorite are the lighthearted high-fantasy ones featuring the "Ladies aid and armor society.". I also enjoyed "Politics," as it captured well the driving obsession that is musical composition.


    • I enjoyed almost every story in this collection. This makes the second Elizabeth Moon book I've read and both were great. I need to move more of her books up my to-read queue.The narration was also well done.


    • Interesting collection of fantasy and SF short stories ranging from series that appeared in Friesner's Chick series to a tale set in the world of Pakserrion to the world of Vatta. Enjoyable having the stories gathered together rather than scattered in various anthologies.



    • I loved it. It really does run the gamut from stories about up and coming cheese traders to serious military manoeuvres.


    • My favorite parts of this book of short stories were the four stories about the Ladies' Aid & Armor Society. Each one was laugh-out-loud good.



    • Good short story collection. I was surprised to find there was something of Elizabeth Moon's I hadn't read. Love her stuff.



    • I really enjoyed the stories in this collection. They were all well-written and thought provoking. From deep dark intellectual SF to the Ladies Aid & Armor Society. Highly recommended.
