Definitely enjoyed these two novellas.They had an "old timey" SF feel to them.The first one had some predictable plot elements but I liked it a lot.I would have liked the second novella better as a novel - it was told from too many different points of view for me.Normally I appreciate this, but in the context of a shorter novella it was too much information without enough development for each character.I kept getting confused about who was who and what was what.Also, I felt like the utopian/ dystopian elements to the different societies could have been given more in-depth treatment in a full-length novel.
