5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect lost weekend February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit I originally purchased the set because it was a great deal and Platt & Wright were included so I figured it had to be good. I read it over a snowy three day weekend and, luckily, my kids are teenagers as they might have starved! I peaked out here and there to make sure nothing was burning and that was it for this Mom. I was blissfully lost in what may or may not be the bleak or hopeful future of our species.
One of the things I love about dystopian fiction is that it shows us the best and the worst of the human condition. Included in the set are a few 1st chapters of continuing series. Yes, I will have to purchase the "Sand" series because a taste was not enough. I came in addicted to everything Sean Platt and David Wright collaborate on but re-read the first chapter of "Yesterday's Gone" as a refresher. Damn, I love it!! Apocalypse Drift might have been my favorite in the non-series stories, but I'd have to re-read them to decide. And I will.
If you're a fan of dystopian fiction I can't imagine why you haven't bought the series already. A great taste of the genre's authors, some known to me previously, other's a delightful introduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Dystopian Collection January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finally finished. Took me a week to read all of the books in this fabulous collection! Over 36 hours on my Kindle! So well worth it though! I cannot and will not pick a favorite...simply because I truly loved ALL of them (and I am picky!). I was already a fan of Yesterday's Gone, having read just about everything these guys write, but was delighted to find new favorites included here. A nice variety of dystopian fiction too...not your usual run of the mill...end of the world/zombie stories. I seriously would have spent ALOT more for this collection and it's one I will NOT delete from my Kindle. If you're looking for a read that will totally engross you, stretch your imagination and give you your money's worth, don't miss this one. Fantastic idea to combine them all in one set! Thanks and kudos to all the authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Down, 5 to Go! January 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I already read Yesterday's Gone: Season One by Sean Platt and David Wright, and love all the options available in this book! I just picked up a copy and am looking forward to working through all the other books included.

Here's my review of Sand: Part 1 - The Belt of the Buried Gods:
Sand is an awesome start to a new series. I was already a fan of Hugh Howey's Wool series and was looking forward to checking out his new book. This story got me interested in learning more about the world of Sand; how did the world get buried? Why do the prevailing winds never change direction? How long has the world been buried? The cliffhanger (almost) at the end leaves me wondering what will happen to the main character (though I wasn't too surprised by what happened to his friend...) I'll definitely be picking up the omnibus of this series when it's available. Update: I already picked up and read the Sand Omnibus and it was awesome!

Here's my review from Yesterday's Gone:
Yesterday's Gone is a great long-running serial with a large cast of characters. The first season is a little bit rough around the edges, but they work in great cliffhangers that keep you reading from episode to episode and each season gets better as the authors improve in their collaborations.

I reviewed the books in this series individually as well. I liked almost every novel and short story in this set, some more than others. Since I've given more full reviews, I will give a quick breakdown and a note on if I would continue to read the series (if there is one):

Sand: Part 1 - The Belt of the Buried Gods by Hugh Howey (40 Pages) - I will read more in this series - short story really well done and interesting enough to keep me reading more, highlighting special skills needed to survive in the future and what happens when you are betrayed.

Yesterday’s Gone: Season One by Sean Platt and David Wright (503 pages) - Long, but interesting. I'm unsure right now if I'm interested to buy the second season - there were points in Season One that dragged and I think the Season as a whole could have been made much shorter and still gotten the points across.

Apocalypse Drift by Joe Nobody (314 pages) - A different take on the apocalypse that for once wasn't zombie-related, and one that I enjoyed reading very much. I would be interested in reading more by this author.

Contamination Zero by T.W. Piperbrook (95 pages) - A short story that serves as an introduction to a series that sounds very interesting... the characters are in the eye of the beginning storm and watch the apocalypse begin. I will be reading more in this series.

Artificial Evil by Colin F. Barnes (272 pages) - Great first book in a series - I see this story as a bridge between when the world fell apart before and when it may fall apart again. If you enjoy cyberpunk, this is worth giving a try.

The Tube Riders by Chris Ward (449 pages) - Good, but now that it's a couple of days past when I finished it, I'm not sure I'll continue with the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many book one in a series
Maybe I misread the ad but my understanding was that most of these were complete stories. At least three so far are book one in a series. That's not what I wanted. Read more

A great set of individual books. Each the first in a series by a different author, so the intent is to suck you into buying the rest. Read more

I have enjoyed the several thousand pages I have read so far, for if no other reason than the epic size and interesting characters. That said, where is my dystopian society? Read more
