Another great anthology from Richard Peabody, Amazing Editor, with a cover that will let you see Alice with new respect. Following the Mondo series (Mondo Barbie, Mondo Elvis, Mondo James Dean, etc.) and the Grace and Gravity series (Fiction by Washington DC Women -- Volumes II and III in progress), Alice Redux is the usual fine collection of varied styles that Peabody is so talented in assembling. Am looking forward to the release of Sex and Chocolate in February, 2006.
