Broken Worlds – Edited by Jack Burgos
We are never alone, not truly. We exist within systems; families, societies, governments, countries, continents; all within a singular planet in a singular solar system in a singular galaxy in a singular universe. And none of these are perfect. Many are broken, some beyond repair. Some could become broken over time. Others need to be destroyed to be improved. This book is about broken worlds, from families to a multiverse, where things are not what they seem or seem to be what they are: utterly broken from the top down and vice versa.
A plethora of short stories for a variety of tastes. Zombies, robots, Lovecraftian monstrosities, dystopias, even an organism that occupies its hosts through rain. Nihilistic, dark, and demented. And I’ve enjoyed it immensely. – Amazon review
