An awesome book of imaginative short stories. I loved some, disliked others. The final story, Burn, was my favorite. Least favorite: Leila Torn Show. All are fast, vivid reads.
This is a fantastic collection of short stories, each completely different from all the others. An excellent read.
My one complaint is that almost every story feels too short. I feel like I'm reading a sample chapter and I want to go read the whole novel now, but... there's no novel. More please!
