You can read some reviews on GoodReads here. On a minor note, one review criticised the Steele story as “..could have been an African safari adventure, just a perfunctory gloss of sci-fi” which was one of my beefs with the Coyote series.

Jason McGregor reviews the issue on TangentOnline, who also picks up on the same Steele criticism, and ditto for the Monaghan story, which which I had similar beefage.
