Purgatory Station (2008)

Purgatory Station

Collection of short stories that take place on a space station with various alien races, among them humans, and a human priest who solves a few cases that pose interesting moral dilemmas and are structured like mystery stories. It’s a nice read and sports the usual compulsively readability by Stackpole, but since there are not that many stories in the first place and the overall settings remains pretty vague, it doesn’t leave a deeper impression character-, setting- or story-wise. Nice distraction, but not a lot of substance.
