Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.

To be completely upfront about it, I have a story in this collection. Any writer worth his keyboard is going to tell you that his is the best story in the collection. I can't honestly say that -- the quality of the stories is remarkably high. Even more amazing is that there isn't a single total dog in the whole collection, an event rarer than a solar eclipse. This is not for those who sip their tea with dainty pinky extended, this is for somebody who finds humor in someone putting away a six-pack and belching the first stanza of a country-western song. I was afraid, with the guidelines, that the stories might seem redundant, and several elements were used more than once -- the lethality of stomach gas and halitosis, for instance -- but the treatments were different enough that I didn't get the feeling "here we go again." There were so many bizarre and inventive stories that to choose one is difficult, but perhaps the story of the really lonely guy who built himself a woman out of Spam was one of the best, and pretty illustrative of the sort of outrageous humor that makes this book a pleasure to read. Some shyer types may want to take the cover off John Grisham novel to hide the fact that they're not among the brain-washed, but for the rest of us, the cover was part of the fun.

Ok, this is yet another author of one of the stories in this anthology. But before you think I'm being biased, several of the stories in the Bubbas books have won awards, including mine. So, either we're very funny or someone shares our outrageously bad tastes.
Seriously, these stories will have you laughing until your sides hurt and tears roll from your eyes. They're nothing but fun. If you don't find this book funny, you truly have lost your sense of humor.
The premise is that the Bubbas of the world have survived the apocalypse. The rest of the "normal" people have died, been turned into zombies that are yuppie zombies (Yumbies), or have been killed and eaten by Yumbies. Like the four horsemen of the apocalypse, the four bubbas of the apocalypse wreak their terror on all, especially the Yumbies.
Does this sound fun? Well it is. Even if I didn't have a story in it, I'd recommend it.

The sequel to the 1st BOTA book is hilarious. New stories by a ton of authors (or maybe 2 tons - I didn't ask their weights). But more rip-roaring fun as the Bubbas meet up with their own Trojan Horse, a cure for the yombie virus and the discovery that not everyone you're related to is exactly what you think they are. Pass the BBQ sauce and pass the gas, cause here come the Bubbas.
