***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
Four stars only as the whole thing is as depressing and pessimistic as anything I have ever read. Technically the work is good; hence the four stars.
This is a sci fi anthology of short stories and I have made a brief note regarding each. Most are very depressing and pessimistic, so be warned.
Warp and Weave by C.L.McCollum  Speculates on life after time ceases to flow at  a constant rate. Various items, humans excepted may revert to their Past or their future form. An interesting concept, well written.
The Oryx and The Undead by Kelly Matsuura  A very good post-apocalyptic tale. A shape shifting race, always present has now allowed the rest of the survivors to know them. The main trouble is the presence of Zombies.
The Cure by Nicole Daffure    A madman (or group) develop a way of eliminating all humanity surplus to their requirements to rebuild. They almost get away with it.
Landers by Samantha Ketteman Most believable short tale so far – another post apocalyptic one – this time solar flares have wiped out most of the population and animals
Piano Man by Catherine Stovall – Interesting picture.
The End by Eada Janes  – Well titled poem.
Darkness by H J Daly –   Long in the future the night is to be feared – but no one knows why.
Dead World by Toni Lesatz –  Like most of the other stories this could be the beginning of a novel.
Red Scorpion by Yasmin Fazli  – The best so far.
Looking In by Cathy Daff Ricketts  – Interesting pic.

Terminus By Scott Venue –    A poem.

Falling Through Time by Emma Michaels & Michael Cross –
Time travel, strictly regulated has its problems

Population Zero Nicky Louise –
Another pessimistic look at the future of overpopulated Earth

Last of His Kind Sherwin Matthews –
Even more pessimistic, but not so well written as often inconsistent. E.g no electricity on world, yet electric trains still run.

Insurrection Madison Stewart –
Slightly more optimistic

Behind the Mask Nicky Louise –
Pic

Forgotten Demetria Motsinger –
Poem

No Tomorrow Catherine Stoval –
As the title says

Dakkar A Tales of the Orb Prequel  H. L. Houghton –
May well be the first couple of chapters of a novel

Delilah’s Birth K.C. Finn –
An unusual tale – well told and complete.

Double Exposure Andrea L. Staum –
Short story with a possible future for us – instead of an end.

End of Days Jeff Motsinger –
Pic by author

The Mirror Cathy Daff Ricketts –
Poem
