I really enjoyed all the Reapers books and the Cutting Room so I thought I would give this a try. This should of been a free book. These stories are really only the beginnings of stories which really don't go anywhere. If there is some kind of higher plain of thinking for these shorts, I didn't get it. These stories are more like notes which didn't get used or will be used later. Save your money on this one.
