Mike Resnick, The Outpost

Mike Resnick's The Outpost was as disappointing to me as The Return of Santiago. Essentially, this is a collection of tall tales told by figures of the wild west. Except the wild west is in space. I guess he is trying to say something about history and who records it. But the problem to me is that the stories themselves become tiresome.
