3.5 stars, it took me a month to work through this collection of short stories in one of my favorite series. For me it suffered from its lack of main stream characters, most of the stories were entirely disconnected from the main thread of the series.
I downloaded this e-arc through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. The Black Tide Rising world that John Ringo created was in no means original. Zombie stories have been written and rewritten for decades. What I appreciate about his version is how character driven it is and that these characters are smart and flawed. I really liked this short story collection because it brought more characters into the world, showed how other regions of the US and the world coped with the apocalypse, ex [...]
This is a fun anthology of short stories set in John Ringo's Zombie Apocalypse setting from "Under A Graveyard Sky," written by a range of authors from John Scalzi to Michael Z. Williamson. Probably the weakest two are the two contributed by Ringo himself, although I quite enjoyed his introductory story, where heroine Faith Smith explains why she named an alligator "Reginald." Ranging from the tale of survivors who set up a fortress on the top of oil tanks in Lake County, Indiana to a high schoo [...]
This was a really interesting compilation with a mixed-bag of stories.Couple of things made it interesting. First, it's one of the only anthologies I've read where the writers are all playing in a very specific playground. In other words, it's not a free-ranging anthology like Dangerous Women or The Mystery Writers of America Presents The Mystery Box where there's one guiding theme but basically everyone does their own thing. Instead, all of the stories were set in John Ringo's particular zombie [...]
Love this book. Wasn't sure I would as it is mostly stories by other authors doing stories in the world of zombies created by John Ringo. Loved the various stories and characters. My only problem, I WANT MORE!!! Of each and every story. Oh well, maybe there will be more. Definitely recommend this book!
Many fun stories about people either surviving or getting eaten by zombies. And John Ringo adds a second, final story to the end so he can ring a few more OH JOHN RINGO NO bells (a lot of the zombies turn out to be non-infectious docile morons, ideal for slavery or forced pregnancy, which is lucky because western civilizations breed more slowly than eastern ones so American civilization will fail and the ravening barbarian hordes will win unless all American women start bearing as many children [...]
This is an anthology: a collection of stories by various authors with a common theme. The theme of this is the Dark Tide Rising series by John Ringo. I found it fascinating to read the different angles on the same theme. The last story was the most compelling, how do we manage a "civilization" without what is needed. Read it to understand.Yes, the zombie apocalypse has been done over and over but I haven't read too many about POST apocalypse and how humanity might survive. It is interesting. I'm [...]
This collection has gems in itbut it also had turds and some in between. Overall it wasn't a great collection which is sad.Some stories fit the world and back story and had solid attempts to expand the world.Others, well you could tell the authors read a synopsis somewhere and then tried to write in the world and ended up in mush.Others were just boring. Overall I struggled to finish about half the stories.
Zombies Like Never BeforeThis book of short stories kept me intrigued the whole way through. Not a single story was dull. They were however incredibly different from one another, putting us in places in the universe we have never seen before.
This is why I don't read short story books ! When you have 11 different authors some are good and many are not very good ! Short stories also leave too many things hanging and do not give you a sense of completion and fulfillment ! Very uneven ! Just a so-so book !
An outstanding collection of short works set in Ringo's zombie plague universe. The differing styles really make this an enjoyable read.
This book is an anthology of stories associated with the other Black Tide Rising books, but not about the Wolf Squadron starred in the previous books (Black Tide Rising 1 - 4).
Middling as an anthology.
Great anthology!Overall this is a great anthology. A story or two falter a bit but the rest make up for it.
uneven. Some parts rated 4 stars some parts rated 2 stars
Great companion to the Black Tide Rising series. Makes me want to re-read the entire series!
I haven't finished this ARC yet, but I can't wait to tell someone how much I liked "On the Wall" by John Scalzi. I won't spoil it, but two guys are standing a night watch on the wall of their compound. There is not a single word of narration in it. It's all dialogue. I mean, the military version of Quentin Tarantino dialogue. People, talking, like people talk. It's fine art, I say. After I get through being ecstatic over that, I'll read some more. But be sure you don't miss this book, and the Sc [...]
While I knew this was an anthology, I was expecting something different to what I got. I'd been hoping for some of the not filled out back stories from the main characters in the series, or some answers to some of the unanswered questions. What I got was a series of stories, apart from the last one, that dealt with the initial outbreaks and what people in various areas did. The best stories were by Eric Flint, Michael Z. Williamson, Sarah A. Hoyt and Mike Massa, although the only story I didn't [...]
If you have read the Black Tide Rising series, you will likely enjoy Black Tide Rising, a collection of short stories set in the series universe. John Ringo opens and closes the book, but a number of other authors such as Eric Flint, John Scalzi, Ted Roberts, and others get to play in the sandbox. Most of the stories deal with people have to make quick, right decisions under the stress of the unknown virus. There are tales of cheerleaders, art thieves, outlaws, neighbors, and families coming tog [...]
This is a series of isolated stories within the confines of John Ringo's Black Tide Rising book series. It makes use of his foundation to tell the stories of various groups of people existing in the world at the time of the zombie apocalypse. Some of the authors were more compelling than others, but many of the stories left me wanting to know more about the characters described in the stories. I still want to see Ringo come out with a continuation of the story and see where things go from here. [...]
Some good, two not so much While most of the stories were a tribute to John Ringo's world, two were not. One was so off I doubt the author read any of the books. I certainly stopped reading. The Alphas are animals with certain traits, not cunning killers with memories and plans. Overall, I liked the book and the majority of the stories. I hope some of the scientific and social issues are explored further in the future. Do the Betas children have normal brain function, for example. Overall, well [...]
Black Tide Rising By John RingoThis is a collection of short stories set up in the world of To Sail Darkling Sea , zombie post-apocalypse world. I'm not fond of short stories but these are worth reading. Note these are not by Ringo but edited by him. I don't make any attempt to review each story in a collection. Some were better than others. They all stuck closely to the theme and some even came close to the irreverent punch out style of Ringo. I recommend the book. Web sites: johnringo/Homepx
I actually was VERY disappointed in this one. I was hoping we'd get stories covering some of the dropped plot threads throughout the other books. Nope. Instead we got a series of, in my opinion, poorly written shorts that didn't advance the series OR resolve anything. AND a fanservice cover that was also kinda awful.And clearly it wasn't edited all that well. One story in particular makes NO SENSE in relation to the first three books of the series. Not recommended unless you are a completist who [...]
This is a must read if you've found the "Black Tide Rising" series enjoyable.I was impressed with the caliper of writers Ringo pulled into his apocalyptic world. I use anthologies to find new writers and this anthology has several. BTR also introduces Mike Massa, an individual showing great talent for character quick sketches and fast plotting. I hope you turn your hand to writing, I will read it.
I loved the original quartet of books that created this universe. The good short stories made me want to know more about the characters that were caught up in this interpretation of the zombie apocalypse. The bad ones, however, became a necessary evil for me, just know which ones are better than others. On the whole, the good ones (including two written by Ringo himself) outweigh the bad, and makes it worth the price of admission.
It was great to revisit John Ringo's world of Black Tide. I really enjoyed how much thought that some of the author's put into surviving the zombie apocalypse. The tank farm was an inspired thought, that I would consider if I the apocalypse happens. This book made me want to reread the Black Tide books.
I liked five out of the twelve stories and gave the following stories 3 stars each:1. "Up on the Roof" by Eric Flint2. "Staying Human" by Jody Lynn Nye3. "Do No Harm" by Sarah A. Hoyt4. "200 Miles to Huntsville" by Christopher Smith5. "Best Laid Plans" by Jason Cordova and Eric S. BrownI gave the other stories either 1 or 2 stars.
A decent collection of stories set in a world that I enjoy. Like most collections, some were great, and some were merely acceptable. Overall I feel the quality in this collection was fairly high, although I'm not apt to read them again, for all that I're read and re-read the "real" books in the series.
A set of short stories by various authors set in the Black Tide Rising series detailing what happens during the zombie apocalypse.I liked all the different short stories in this collection. They were all very well written, interesting, and furthered/ enhanced the story arc of the Black Tide Rising series.
A short story collection set in the the Black Tide Rising universe of zombie apocalypse. Some stories are really good and some are average. On the whole a fun collection if you’ve read the books by John Ringo. The dialogue only vignette by John Scalzi deserves special mention as it is both clever and hilariousokssboch/?p=1978
