Excellent book. loved every second of this read! ( )
  Hessius | Dec 4, 2016 |
Eh. A few good stories, a few OK ones, a lot that were just weird, and most of them were depressing and/or foul (gory, or mentally/emotionally foul, or both). Seanan's was one of the more subtle ones, but nasty - a nice, kind, capable, efficient serial killer. Of two, at least...who knows what's she's encountered previously (or will encounter the rest of the way). I think that one should have been by Mira Grant, not Seanan McGuire. A lot of them just splashed gore around. Many showed off the worst of people - from mobs destroying things to the nasty things a couple can do to one another while the world falls apart around them. There were a few hopeful ones - not necessarily hopeful about the world, or rebuilding, but about the people. There was a long bit from David Brin's The Postman that was a shining example of same. I'm not sure if it was the story that turned into the novel, or just the first few chapters of the book - and I'm now inspired to read the book (I've had it on the shelf for quite a while). So I'm not exactly sorry I read this, but overall it was not a pleasant experience. If you like grim and depressing, go for it - most/all of the the stories were well-written, just not my cup of tea.
