Population of Loss: Four Tales of the Martian War (Martian War Chronicles Book 1) by Michael and Shell DiBaggio is an interesting dystopian collection about the Martian wars. It features four separate stories about various characters who are important to this setting, and each of them showcases a different part. One is about fairies and fey creatures like satyrs; one is about a great hero who found an object that helped him fight back against the enemies; one is about a group of knights who are hoping to rekindle the fire of the lost race; and the final one is about a cursed man who is taking his vengeance out on his enemies. Each story individually introduces and showcases different characters, and they all contribute to the overall story being told about humanity's fall and life after this collapse.

It is short as a self-contained work; however, it is well-written and has a lot of interesting moments and characters. I think if the book was longer it would be able to tell the story much better. All in all, the stories are enjoyable, and fans of the genre and this setting will really enjoy reading about this particular fall of humanity. Population of Loss: Four Tales of the Martian War (Martian War Chronicles Book 1) by Michael and Shell DiBaggio is a real winner for the right audience and will entertain most science fiction readers.
