After the far superior "Heroes in Hell" and "Rebels in Hell," this third entry is a let-down, but still features a few good stories, especially one by Gregory Benford. Overall, the long-term narrative loses its way, and the discreet stories vary from very good to so-so. Read this if you've read the series' predecessors, but it's not tragic if you miss it; readers languish in limbo as much as the characters here. Morris needed to impose more of a narrative through-line, as Philip Jose Farmer did in his similar "Riverworld" novels. The work suffers from lack of plot advancement and focus.
