A couple with potential

Great authors, throw away stories. A couple are decent, but most either tease you with a cool idea but fail on execution, or are just outright uninteresting or too awkward.

Hard to Rate

Some of the stories were outstanding, but many were boring or had weak endings. I had to skip a few stories because the topics were so lame.
