As a warm-up, the author first presents three stories in this volume, which, compared to what he usually delivers, are quite harmless and come up with questionable, happy endings. And so the whole book should become in the sum, a collection of stories with happy endings and marked by the power of love.But then the reader dives into the usual dark, evil shallows, which he naturally expects from the author.Beginning with the fourth story, Udo Meeßen takes the reader into the late 21st century to London, where vice still flourishes in this time. Disguised as human beings, creatures live there which people regard as basic food and which can draw from the fullness of the metropolis, which is populated by 20 million people. But are these murderous creatures the real monsters? Are they really evil incarnate, or are they not merely fighting back to survive?Much of what happens in these stories can't be explained conclusively in any case, because there is no explanation for the events. There is no science, no logic and no expertise to help. The events elude any explanation and the bottom line is to acknowledge that evil always, in one way or another, finds its way and brutally intervenes in people's lives.And one thing is repeatedly made clear... that what man perceives as a threat and evil is not always evil, but only an appropriate response to the behavior of man throughout the millennia of his merciless rule over the earth and the other species that once shared the world with him.Some of these stories have happy endings, but by no means all of them, and this is also true, because the human protagonists apparently deserve their inglorious, painful endings just as much, and are merely presented with the bill on behalf of humanity.
