Like any good anthology should, this book contains a wide range of of tales that would appeal to a variety of tastes. Secrets, death, and wondrous discoveries are all found in Desolate Places. I have found 'Tomb' the most memorable, because it's future realistic and reflects my belief that the cosmos does not cater to humans. It's a frightening story, and the ending is just perfect. 'Nor Winter's Cold' is also realistic. It is a sad story about perseverance. 'Adrift' I would tag a happy story, although it does not start out like that. I also like 'Flying Solo', and 'Weapons of Mass Destruction' is interesting in a slightly comical way.
Desolate Places would satisfy a variety of tastes. The book is filled with stories set on alien worlds, in space, and on Earth. Most of the stories are good, some are very good and a few are okay. My favorites are: Tomb, Bone Wars, Red, and Engaging the Idrl.
