I love reading anthologies and short story collections because you can experience works from a range of different styles by several authors. As far as anthologies go this is a decent collection with my favorite stories coming from authors David Dunwoody and James Patrick Riser. Their stories are brutal, bloody and fun to read. The same cannot be said for some of the other stories.

Some of the shorts are shorter excerpts or chapters from longer pieces and feel disjointed and lacking. The four stories from Mr. Riser and Mr. Dunwoody are the stand outs in this collection and worth the cost.
