Accomplished? Yes (in a VERY specific way).
Enjoyable? Not to me, overall (as a fan of immersive world-building).
The VanderMeer name is synonymous with collections of stories that span eras and genres. This volume is "modern" fantasy, those stories published after WWII. There are 91 short stories in this volume, a fair collection of famous and unknown authors from many different countries. The settings and characters are unique...that's one requirement of fantasy...and as in all collections, you'll love some and hate some and reread many of them. I know I did. This is a great read for anyone interested in fantasy or looking to expand their reading experiences.
