I love this book, not just for its cool premise (it's a book of short stories about what life would be like if there was a machine that could predict the way you would die - but not when, or how), but also for the fact that due to a massive online effort it managed to hit #1 on Amazon, beating out Glenn Beck. Not only THAT, but they went ahead and released a free PDF
, which is the way I read it.
The stories are by both pros and amateurs, each with an illustration, and each titled in a manner of dying. They do range in quality, of course. Short stories are so subjective. But I really enjoyed reading them all. It's just one of those premises you can really run with.
