The stories are moving and intense and sweet and funny and interesting and engrossing (and I could write 25 different adjectives, one for each story, but I won't) but the one common thread I noticed throughout the whole anthology is how well-written and solid each story is. The characters and scenes each felt fully constructed and real.
Keep an eye out for the authors included in this book because it won't be long before they are hitting the big time, and you can say, "I read them before they were famous."
Also, be sure to check out page 374! Great stuff!
Some of my favorites from the anthology are Scenes from the City of Garbage and City of Clay, Think Tank, Faces on the Milk Carton, The Mulligan, Noir's City, Dragon by the Dumpster, One Shot, and I'm sure a few others that I loved that I'm missing. Just from that list, there are crime stories, sci-fi, drama, horror, and thrillers. The only theme throughout the anthology is that they are damn good stories. Some stories are exceptionally great but there's really not a bad story in the mix. If you're looking for some good independent authors to support this is a great place to find some. Also, you should definitely check out this podcast as a continuing source for good books and insightful thoughts on them. Robb and Livius know what they're talking about.
