    1. As most anthologies, some of the stories here are great, some are less-great. In this context, I'd define "great" as "beautifully capturing the spirit and humor of the PARANOIA roleplaying game while still succeeding as entertaining fiction." Whereas "less-great" is more on the lines of "makes lots of PARANOIA in-jokes" or "reads like a narration of a random PARANOIA session."

Everyone.The game, and the stories in this [...]

    3. Really did want to like this one. It started so well too. unfortunately I'm now onto the third story and none of them have instilled any desire to continue reading the rest. I think part of the problem is the Paranoia world. It basically consists of a covered complex controlled by am AI computer that insists on controlling everyone via endless rules and regulations. These things when combined don't really lead to the most exciting of stories.Shame. I really did want to like it.

    4. Really, really liked some of the concepts which were hinted at in these stories, but overall, the stories themselves just weren't that great to me.
