This is a very good collection of short stories from up-and-coming as well as established authors. I particularly liked Lawrence M. Schoen's contribution, "The Wrestler and the Spear Fisher" (very mythic-legendary in structure); John Passarella's "Blood Alone" (makes me want to pick up the rest of his Wendy Ward stories); Jonathan McGoran's "Appetite" (well-crafted spookiness); Jeffrey J. Mariotte's "Janey in Amber" (REALLY spooky); C.J. Henderson's "The Wonderous Boundless Thought" (C.J. is so damn GOOD at short stories, I don't know how the man does it!), and of course Catherynne M. Valente's "Proverbs of Hell" (is there such a thing as a bad Valente short story?).
I found all the stories in this book interesting, unusual, and entertaining. I definitely recommend picking this one up!
