    Who better to narrate today's best science-fiction stories than today's favorite science-fiction stars? This exciting collection features many.

    Overall

    This is a fine collection. The narration is also good. The one REALLY annoying characteristic is that there is no break between stories. No announcement of author, title, date etc. The next story just starts in with even less pause than between sentences within a story. If it were not for the fact that the narrator changes, you would not even be able to tell only by listening when one ends and the next one starts.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    Overall

    This was enjoyable enough for flight time listening, but it got pretty silly for my tastes. What is worse yet it seems unnecessarily so (i.e. putting in something outlandish that doesn't even remain consistent to the story's presumptions, let alone doing so with as few non-reality presumptions as possible, but that doesn't even add anything to some other part of the story, is just a dead end). So well narrated for sure, and that makes up for a lot, but can't really recommend it.
