Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm sorry, but this anthology is absolute crap. I had to order this for a writing class a few years ago and the anthology collaborator came in to lecture. He was absolutely nuts. My professor was also one of the authors of a short story, which was also terrible. I honestly wish this was a better book, because it had so much potential... but its like reading crap literature then trying to ascribe quality and devices to something that's just awful. I'm sure the authors all thought that the stories were great, but I handed this to other professors in the department at that school as well as others and after they read the collaborator's story "Bender" in the book they laughed because its terrible.... Don't waste your money.
