the pine deep trilogy isn't Maberry's best stuff. Try the Rot and Ruin series instead

I've read many of Card's novels, but if all of his short stories are of the same quality as THE CHANGED MAN, then his stories may actually be better than his novels.

Not one weak story in here, but "Fat Farm" was my favorite

didn't like it quite as much as the other Alvin maker books.

The book, to me, felt like a handful of setpieces, with zombies thrown in. I had a hard time feeling an emotional attachment to the story

I don't rate very many book with 5 stars. This year I read 100 books, and only handed out seven 5-star ratings. With that being said, this was the BEST book I read in 2015. It was like a more dystopian Lord of the Flies, but more emotionally involving.
