The 2012 Book Mine Set Short Story Online Anthology

Here it is, the 2012 Book Mine Set Short Story Online Anthology, ranked from my least to my most favourite. All my reviews, as well as links to the stories themselves (all found for free online), can be accessed by clicking on the story titles. I hope you check at least some of them out.
