Fun mix of stories, a lot of robot/AI ones.

I really enjoy Hugh Howey and have all his books in "actual" book form, but since this was available as a Kindle bargain I bought it on Kindle, fully expecting to love it and buy the physical copy at a later date. This is actually my least favorite of his books. Although that isn't me saying it's not a great book, because it is. I just felt that a lot of the stories were hit and miss for my own personal preferences. For example, I don't like robot stories and several of these were robot. I don't love outer space stories and a couple of these were outer space/aliens. I very much enjoyed the Wool mini-trio, and I also was very moved by the final story, the author's own experience on the day of 9-11. I didn't love how he tied it into the bizarre zoo on the alien planet, and skimmed through those parts. But his own autobiographical bits were stunning and had a life of their own that I very much appreciated him sharing with us.
