A mixed collection of short stories.

Some are extremely forgettable. I have already forgotten what they were, or what they were about, or even their titles. Zombies in a super-sized mall, a pithy reference to Star Trek redshirts dying. Ho hum.

A few stood out very well - they reminded me of Philip K. Dick, and the use of science-fiction concepts to investigate human problems in an original or alternative way. The first story of 'outsourcing emotions' is painful and sensitive.

The book seems half-done, but there is some real potential here.
