More misses than hits.

In all anthologies you'll have some bad but in this it's mostly bad. Maybe it's just badly labeled. But not many of these stories are from a ruined place. In the intro they explain that apocalypse means change, but the book isn't called Out of the Apocalypse.

There are definitely good stories in here, but not many about ruins.
