Milk and Honey by Jason Fischer ★★★★★
Oh hell yes! I was not expecting an alternate history story in this anthology so the first page caught me off guard. But wow, this hit it out of the park.

“Imagine that, the whole world at war and all because one liar wanted to become a famous artist.”

This is only the second WWII-didn’t-happen alt history I’ve read, but I five starred The Black Sun by Lewis Shiner as well.

And just incase you didn’t know, that’s a diprotodon.

RTC, but a solid collection. In this case, three stars is a true "I liked it".

What a refreshing change! These tales are filled with hope and possibilities and brighter futures for us all. My favorite story in this anthology is D.K. Mok's “The Wandering Library." She had me at the title, but holy moly, what a read! This author can write and then some. Can't wait to dive into the other stories. Highly recommended.

Ecopunk is a collection of short stories about ecological issues that have a positive spin. Whilst I found a few stories to be too abstract for me, I generally enjoyed this book. The stories were well written, cleverly done and unique. I was disappointed that there weren’t any stories that had permaculture as a theme. I think this is an area that is sadly missing from fiction stories. I can recommend the book and I hope to see more only these lines.

All the stories read like first drafts. There are only a few that stand out as actual quality writing with good stories: "The Right Side of History" by Jane Rawson, "The Mangrove Maker" by Thomas Benjamin Guerney, "The Butterfly Whisperer" by Andrew Sullivan, and "Happy Hunting Ground" by Corey J. White.

The stories varied and many were something I got through. I read half of this book about a year ago and the half this year. There was one story that had haunted me from last year and that is The Wandering Library by DK Mok which I reread tonight and enjoyed it even more with my second reading.

Most of these stories were really bad. However, I did enjoy "Mr Mycelium" by Claire McKenna, "The Right Side of History" by Jane Rawson, "The Wandering Library" by D.K. Mok, and "Island Green" by Shauna O'Meara. I would've given up if I didn't have to read it for an assignment.
