I received a copy of this book via a Goodreads "FirstReads" giveaway, with encouragement from the editor that I leave an honest review.

I received this book as part of GoodReads First Reads giveaway.

This an anthology of 12 short stories that share the common theme of being about 'miscreations.' Things where something went wrong (for good or for ill or neither) when it was born or made.

A pretty interesting bundle of short stories encompassing everything from science fiction and future, to fantasy and religion (not obnoxious religion though). Most were of supernatural themes.
My favorite three:
1) "My Toaster Hates Me!"
2) "The Joke"
3) "The Hunt"

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
