    Sophomoric effort at best, every story ends with a "surprise" twist that the author goes to great pains to explain. Some of the basic story ideas are good ones but after the first few it simply became a game of trying to figure out what the twist was going to be, about half of them you can see coming a mile away. There was a similarity in characters that carried over from one story to another, at first I was a bit confused because I wasn't sure if they were indeed crossing from story to story but they weren't. Not sure if this was deliberate on the author's part or not. The book was relatively free of typos (I only remember one) and the basic writing style is fine, hopefully the author continues to mature and develop.
