Just Meh

There are a handful of good stories here. There rest share one, more, or all of the following characteristics: tedious, incomprehensible, and abrupt or unsatisfying endings that resolve nothing. Excellent narration though. A waste of a credit.

Marvelous Stories

This collection contains a nice variety of stories, all good and some excellent. My favorite story was the last one, Fable, and it made the entire book shine.

meh science fiction/fantasy

Anthology of bottom of the barrel story telling. just circles the drain of post modern nihilism.
