In this anthology there are stories for all tastes. As a first reviewer, I should talk about every story in particular, but it has been already done by the editor, and the synopsis are interesting enough. I can only speak about the stories that appealed to me, but that's simply a matter of personal taste. I'm sure a different reviewer will choose different stories. Let's see... "The Gizzard Wizard" is funny, light, and entertaining. "The Darkfishers" introduces an intriguing world ecology that surely deserved a longer treatment. "Outside Looking In" is grand adventure with an original twist at the end, in the same vein as "Ultra Evolution". "Miles to Go" and "Evergreen" pose interesting ideas, but I felt that the stories were lacking closure; they felt unfinished, as if they were just a glimpse through a window. Maybe that was the writers' idea, but I didn't like it very much. "The Little Finger of my Left Hand" is again a funny story in a light vein, with a not unexpected final twist. All in all, a good selection of SF writers which I'm sure you will like. I strongly recommend it.
