I’m always a fan of stories that ask, “How would people handle having this new technology, this magical power, this situation? Decision Points asks all of those questions. And it has characters who are usually children or young adults making the hard choices.

The anthology starts with Jonathan Mayberry’s “Sisters.” How would children handle a Zombie Apocalypse? I really hate zombie stories and gore, but this was bearable and actually pretty good.

There were a few I didn’t personally like, but that’s to be expected in any anthology. My favorite stories were “My Father’s Eyes” by E.C. Myers, and “An Echo in the Shell” by Beth L. Cato, but almost ...more
