Starr Striker was a far more interesting (very) short story of the two.  It spoke to a contemporary issue with a fantastical flare.  For me, it added enough detail to set the stage in my minds eye and brought me to a thoughtful state.

All the Fishes Singing didn't strike a chord for me.  I must say that the descriptions and details were quite well done, but just didn't catch up with me.  But, that's my problem, not the authors.  My personal impression aside, I felt like the prose was an impressive construction.

I liked this episode. Star Striker had a somewhay offputting recording style (muted, I had to crank up the headphone amp’s volume to hear the detail). Meh.
