Just Meh

There are a handful of good stories here. There rest share one, more, or all of the following characteristics: tedious, incomprehensible, and abrupt or unsatisfying endings that resolve nothing. Excellent narration though. A waste of a credit.

Marvelous Stories

This collection contains a nice variety of stories, all good and some excellent. My favorite story was the last one, Fable, and it made the entire book shine.

Anthology of bottom of the barrel story telling. just circles the drain of post modern nihilism.
