Mostly horrible...mostly....

Out of 30 or so stories 3 or 4 were good, the rest were horrible. Most had bad writing & dull stories. I expected a collection of quality Science fiction shorts about the apocalypse... Instead the common thread in 90% of this collection was a hard left political SJW theme, with no regard for the quality of storytelling. The narrators were either very good, or so poor that I felt like I was listening to a not so bright grade school teacher read aloud to children. I will be getting refund for this book.

Her reviews are worth the trouble!

I’m thrilled that more people are familiar with Ms Tamales. She has an exciting style. Ms Kyle is able to make Eric’s narratives come to life.
