Reviews of Wyrd Worlds II by Various Authors

Josh Karaczewski reviewed on July 10, 2015

Another intriguing mix of indie sci-fi and fantasy from the Smashwords community. This anthology has a wide mix of styles and ideas from an international group of writers, and should serve as a jumping off point to encounter more of the writing from the authors you enjoyed.

My top three stories were:
Humanity was Delicious
A World Taken Over

To come to my 4-star rating I just rated each story - excluding the story I have in the book of course - and averaged them out, rounding my 3.82 score up to 4.

An uneven read, as all anthologies are. But the price is right, and giving it a read is a good way to discover new authors and support the indie writing community.

Victoria Zigler reviewed on Sep. 28, 2014

It took me a couple of days to write this review after I read the book, because I wasn't sure if I should review it or not. I mean, it has a story from me in it. But, since my story is just one of many, I decided I would review the book. Besides, though I liked some stories more than others, all the stories in this collection are very good, and there's not a single story in the entire collection that I didn't like. But I won't give the book a full 5 stars, because it wouldn't be right when doing so would require me to also count my own story. Plus, since some of the stories would have gotten 5 stars from me, and others would have gotten 4 stars, I figure a 4 star rating overall is fair.

Anyway... Great work everyone!

Since I'm one of the participating authors, I rated the single stories, summed the stars I gave and divided them by 18 (didn't count my own story, of course) to have an overall rating.
My five stars stories are:
Humanity was delicious
My last day
Rock of Ages
Quest for the purple pumkin
At the bottom of the lake
Changing everything
All very different ranging from humor to drama, children to adult. Well done, fellow Wyrd Worlders!
