Not Free SF Reader May 17 2008
By Blue Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An anthology that the editor says is grim comedy, as far as the lighter side goes. After reading it, certainly not your fun jokes and laugh out loud sort of tale. More than one end of species type story is to be found here, for example.

A good book overall, right on the 3.50 average.
