Description

""Machine of Death" is a marvelous collection, riddled with intelligence, creative reach, and a frankness that makes the best use of the central gimmick." -- Tasha Robinson, "The Onion" A.V. Club

"For an anthology that deals with the inevitability of death, "Machine of Death" is a lot of fun. The editors knew not to start off heavy, nor does the tone of the anthology lean too long in any direction, providing a lot of singular entertainment for the reader . . . Highly engaging, interestingly crowdsourced, and crafted with a great deal of care. You'll be thinking about it long after you're through reading." -- Chris Greenwood, TOR.com

"The only consistent entity is the presence of the Machine of Death; the appearance of the machine, the depth of its integration into culture, and peoples' responses to it and its predictions vary from story to story. This is both wonderful and frustrating -- each story offers up a uniquely interesting take on the Machine of Death, which is impressive, but sometimes I found myself so taken in by one writer's universe that I wanted it to serve as canon to the rest of the book. It's not a bad complaint to have, and it's the only one I can muster . . . The book is just too good to pass up." -- Andrew Cunningham, Charge Shot!!!

"Picking just one good story in the "Machine of Death" anthology is like any of its characters escaping their foretold deaths -- impossible." Rating: 4/4 -- Christine Cabalo, "Hawaii Marine"

"Recalls the best writings of Harlan Ellison and Charles Beaumont and easily one of the most engaging slices of short stories I've had the pleasure to read in quite a long while. After all the years of picking up short story collections that inevitably disappoint, Machine of Death brought me laughs, terror and tears . . . Highly recommended." -- Maurice Greenwood, "Paradox Magazine"
