There were some with a dark sarcastic kind of humor that I loved, and there were some that I, honestly, just didn't get.
There were several shorts that made me think and really spoke to me, and I've gotten quite a few favorite quotes from this read.
Some of my favorite stories we these:
"Our Cat Enters Heaven" in which (view spoiler)[a cat raptured to heaven finds that his toys are the souls of bad humans. "Our heaven is their hell, said God. I like a balanced universe." (hide spoiler)]
"Chicken Little Goes too Far" in which (view spoiler)[Chicken Little, shrugged by many when he proclaims the sky is falling, starts his own advocacy group and ends up with a assassin after him. (hide spoiler)]
"Thylacine Ragout" in which a Tylacine is successfully cloned, (view spoiler)[only to be sold by a corrupt scientist for someone else to eat. (hide spoiler)]
"The Animals Reject Their Names and Things Return to Their Origins" where the animals reject their names starting a chain reaction that unwinds life as we know it.
