My Review:

I really wanted to love this anthology.  It's biblical apocalyptic stories so the them is the same across the board.  However, there was just too much of the same kind of things throughout each story - which is fine amongst themselves but when reading back to back to back, it got to be a little bit oversaturated.  Seems when hell comes to earth, it's gruesome, a lot of cussing, a lot of strange sex and private parts grabbing and heavy metal.  I'm not opposed to ANY of this - usually the stranger, grosser and weirder the better. 

Just like with all anthologies, there's a mixed bag - some are great, some not so much. I think this would've been better read a story at a time with a little break in between.  Back to back just got a bit cumbersome really. 

Not a bad bunch for hell on earth though.  So go get biblical.
