liked about 50%

(4.5 stars)

I enjoyed about 50% of these, particularly accidental death 80%, advanced chemistry 90%, the good neighbors 90% , The day of the boomer dukes 100% . Not a big fan of “and all the Earth a grave”, a choice of miracles, control group, the hills of home, the last evolution, operation haystack.

not my favourite collection

(3.5 stars)

Some great readings (Greg M especially) but some weak and dreary stories unfortunately. Ends on a strong romp of a tale though.
