"Indispensable reading for anyone interested in fantastic fiction… Czerneda has curated a sterling collection of outstanding work.” —Publishers Weekly STARRED review
PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS VOLUMES:
“Nearly every story, essay, and excerpt featured here is demonstrative of speculative fiction at its very best.”
"Each of these tales offers something compelling and the collection will appeal to a wide range of tastes."
"The main sense we come away with is that the line between genre and literary fiction is increasingly arbitrary."
“Excels at showing the breadth of modern science fiction.”
—Portland Book Review
"There is not a story in the bunch that is not engaging to the reader.... An excellent book for lovers of science fiction."
