really liked it

After is a volume of collected short stories all with a dystopian theme. Some of these stories are un-put-down-able! If that isn't a word, it should be. There were many that I want more, more, more from and wished that I could find out what happened before and after After.

The variety is wide. There are some that were good, but were too science fiction for my taste- no fault of the story, I just don't love science fiction. Some were too high fantasy for me as well. Again, good writing, just not my thing.

But others, like Reunion by Susan Beth Pfeffer and The Marker by Cecil Castelluci and Blood Drive by Jeffery Ford are incredible. The only one I really didn't like at all was Reality Girl.
