Not one of the best anthologies I’ve read, but not one of the worst either. Some of the stories were interesting while I was reading, but most left my memory as soon as I finished the last line. I will point out that a couple of the better stories in this anthology were Spoiler: She Leaves Him by Jack Noble, The Heresy Machine by Gerald Warfield, and How to Survive a Fish Attack by Kato Thompson
I did feel like there was more speculative fiction and fantasy than sci-fi, which was a bummer for me, but I think for fantasy/urban fantasy readers this will be more up their ally.
Copy received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
The content is short, vivid, imaginative stories that stimulate the imagination and the emotions. What I love most about these genres is that it allows you to connect with possible inner realities, which are connected with deep emotions and desires, with a part of our subconscious that emerges when stimulated by the figurative narrative, and sometimes you discover certain aspects of Yourself that you dared not bring to light.
My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
