(LAS VEGAS) IT'S SO CLOSE TO HELL YOU, CAN SEE SPARKS (SPARKS, NEVADA)
I got this because I love the subject matter and Adams is my favorite editor and collector of short stories. If you find THE LIVING DEAD, pick it up, it has some great stories in it. This book is also not originals, but a sort of best of, according to Adams.
THE END OF THE WHOLE MESS
I was very disappointed in this collection. There were way more losers in this collection than most and I felt the book was a wasted credit and I am usually pretty forgiving when it comes to anthologies. The following authors had good stories: Stephen King, Paolo Bacigalup, George RR Martin and Neal Barrett Jr. There were a couple that were okay, but not many. Usually, if I have four or five good stories in a collection, I am happy, but that is if the rest are not awful. The number of stories, that were boring, were so many, that it over rode the good. I will not get the sequel.

The book had some real awesome shorts and some real duds. I was torn on ★ rating. overall it was so up and down I couldn't hate it nor love it. Narration was also all over. I would say don't waste a copy edit and if you can buy for less than a 5 spot.
