I read this book on a whim and was surprised with how much I actually liked it. This collection of short stories are all connected as part of an end of the world scenario where the world is turning to water and people are being eaten by giant earthworms, weird sea creatures, and a white fungus.

The stories are mostly creepy, but some have an element of humor to them, and a few are pretty touching. They're meant to be read in order and are connected with other works from the author.

Even though some of the monsters are a little campy, the overall story arc is creepy and entertaining.

My only criticism is that some of the stories start to sound redundant, but that wasn't enough to keep me from finishing this book. I think horror fans will enjoy this quick read, and I'm looking forward to reading more works by the author.
