Alarmingly samey stuff, differentiated mostly by level of craft rather than subject matter. There are a few gems, but what is missing for the most part is genuine humanity in characterization, empathy for characters, understanding that goes deeper than reacting to personal and historical trauma. This is to be expected from younger writers, I guess, but, it makes for an unpleasant build of grime on your insides as you read. Not a pleasant experience.
