    Worst. Short. Collection. Ever.

    I'm writing my own short story currently, so I picked this up to learn more about them. But, compared to the short stories I've read in the past, this was terrible. It might as well have been written by a bunch of two year olds having sexual fantasies! Litterally! Don't waste your device's memory storage. This is basically a collection of short stories that try to impress by using sex and swear words rather than using real, good writing.

    I hated every one of these stories. Only one character in one story was
    at all sympathetic. Some of them died at the end, but they all should
    have! Many stories just quit mid thought. Writing level was either
    sophomoric or pretentious. If only there were zero stars. Not worth free!
