Format: Paperback
I want to thank the editors for introducing me to 17 new authors who are all worth reading. The subjects of the stories range from a blind young Victorian woman infatuated with the phrenologist supervising her care to a gay sadomasochist and his lesbian companion on an alcohol- and drug-soaked road trip. Despite the variety of styles and subject matter included in this collection, every single story is thoroughly enjoyable--not a single clinker in the group.

If you are a fan of short fiction I would highly recommend this anthology. It is a great showcase of new talent and this book in particular features a great variety of voices and styles. I have read the stories in this book again and again since purchasing it.
