It sounds like it is going to be awesome. The stories, seriously, disappoint. I would love somebody else to try to put together a collection on the subject. There should be awesome tales to tell!

This is one of the most uncommon, original books I have stumbled upon. It's a series of different tales all relating to the Grateful Dead or share a common correlation. But this was more to me than that, I found myself taking each of the story's in one by one, forcing myself to not read it in one sitting but to enjoy each tale fully. This book brought upon all kinds of emotions for me, sadness, guilt, amazement, love, fear, excitement, and alot of tears. Not bad tears, but the type that fill up in your eyes when you hear that Dead song that gives you goosebumps. Not everyone who may stumble upon this review may understand but those that do, do, & those that don't,don't. Fare Thee Well......

I am not a Grateful Dead fan, but I found a little of everything in the book. There are a couple SciFi stories that were quite good. Another even deals with post-apocalyptic zombies. Overall a good read.
