I was hoping we'd get on at least one end-of-the-year list...and Ryan Bradford came through with his recommendation of the SOT books on SD CityBeat. "It's fun to see how each author interprets the prompt—the stories range from pulp to poetic—but there's an unabashed love of genre, monsters and America that runs through each story, and if that doesn't restore some patriotic pride, then you're as doomed as the characters in these books." Thanks Ryan!
