really liked it

I loved every moment that I was lost in this collection. It starts off with an explosion - King's "The End of the Whole Mess," and includes striking tales like "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth" by Cory Doctorow and "A Song Before Sunset" by David Grigg. There were some that struck a strange chord with me like "Episode Seven: Last Stand against the Pack in the Kingdom of the Purple Flowers" by John Langan and "The Last of the O-Forms" by James Van Pelt, but I can respect their work and what they created. I can't say that I liked them, but that may be a result of the way they made me feel, and if that's the case, then they did a great job with their craft. There are great examples for any aspiring writer in this book, and to say that this collection inspired my imagination is a bit of an understatement. I highly recommend this collection to anyone who loves the "what if's" associated with the idea of the apocalypse.
