Author Paul McComas has been writing since he was a young boy (some of his youthful stories are included here), and his love of the art is apparent in every piece in this book. His commentary preceding each work is a delight as well, helping you feel like you really are getting to know the author.
Not every story is a winner, and not all will be to your liking, but I predict you will enjoy the majority of them. ("Malfeasance" is shudder-inducing and very timely, and "The Rail" will haunt you.) Some are disturbing; some are genuinely funny or touching. All of them show imagination and skill, making this book one of the best collections of 2011. And that doesn't even take into consideration the Logan's Run stories in it. -- Doug Brunell for the FEARLESS REVIEWS
So why only four stars, not five? Believe me, what I like in this book I like very much, even though I've never spent much time with horror, science fiction, fantasy, and such. I wasn't as entranced, though, by the scripts of McComas's screenplays and dramas. I think that's because I'm stuck on prose fiction. Don't hold this prejudice of mine against Paul McComas's talent.
The price is steep, yes. The purchase is worth it. These stories will keep you awake at night.
