"But the real question is: What the fuck are you gonna do now? Thirty-six years old, belly starting to get so big it folds over your belt buckle, capillaries broken in your nose from too much drinking for too many years, hair falling out of your head prematurely (as if there's ever a right time for your hair to start dropping from your skull like you're a goddamned chemo patient), teeth yellowed from the Camel Filters, a strained marriage, and now this."

The collection provides a who's-who guide to some underground talents in the world of short fiction, online fiction, and novels. Nearly every story has a detailed author bio, providing background, contact information, and further reading. Some of the biographies are as rewarding as the stories themselves! For example, Gregg W. Boita [p. 64]: "Intelligent and subdued, he quietly mulls the fate of humanity once control is wrested from the powers that be into his own hands. It will not be pretty."
Bravo to Powell for assembling this winning collection. Powell clearly has an eye for talent, and provides a benefit to the reader by selecting these thirty-plus stories to muck with your mind.
