    Thoroughly enjoyed this jaunt through history One short story for each decade from 1900 2000 Starting with the St Louis Worlds s Fair in 1904 and ending with a Y2K chatroom in the 1990 s these short stories capture a moment in time and are interesting and not at all boring Writers are all good story tellers great ideas forbooks to read and stories are as much about human nature as history.

    Some of the stories seemed a little contrived to fit the collection, but most of them were well done.
