4.5 stars! This is a book of novellas all set in the same world, with a linking narrative in between. I think this concept is pretty cool and these authors made it look easy.
Jonathan Maberry's story stole the show. It was a wild ride and I remember this lead character from another short story collection, the title of which I won't mention because it will spoil this story. I liked this character then and I like him more now.
Every story in this collection was above average. I'm especially looking forward to reading more of Brett Talley's work and Joe Nasisse's as well. Only one of these tales didn't resonate that much with me, (even though it was well written), which is why I rated this collection 4.5 stars. Highly recommended!
