really liked it
Read from July 20 to 22, 2012

A great collection of post-apocalyptic short stories. I greatly enjoyed all but one of the 22 stories in here and that one was even ok...just not "great". The variety of visions of life after "the end of civilization" was wonderful; this was definitely not the same story over and over again. This collection contains both hope and despair, not really focusing either way. Most of the stories contained both.

I have only encountered 2 of the stories before: Orson Scott Card's Salvage fromThe Folk of the Fringeand Octavia Butler's Speech Sounds from Bloodchild and Other Stories. So, this was full of new ideas and energy as I read along. A great read for fans of the genre!
