Amateurish

Overall these stories are uneven with only a few really great standouts and several real clunkers For diehards only- you’ll enjoy the good ones and forgive the bad

Good story but boring narration

Loved the stories! Some were fresh and imaginative, and I found a few new writers to follow. The narration was boring and better suited to non-fiction. Narration of the emotionally charged scenes and action were particularly difficult to follow due to the style. Id give it a listen again, but it could have been better.

Wanted to like it, but...

A Mashup of mediocre stories with average narration. Got through four stories but couldn't go on. Sorry. I really wanted to like it.

Good

Imagination runs wild. Like most anthologies, some of the stories were good and some were very good. Meeting new authors is another anthology plus.
