    A unique view of the future

    This is a loosely connected set of short stories set in the future. Mostly dystopian, these stories are mostly sci fi with some horror elements scattered in. The author's take on modern culture and how it might be repesented in the future was both hilarious and horrific.

    I loved it from beginning to end.
