Restricting myself to evaluating solely the short stories, I think that the majority were relatively interesting pieces that were competently written. There were some standout pieces that far exceeded that assessment such as “Compromise,” “O’Hare,” “Blister,” “Change for Domenick,” and “Evening,” this last being the most exquisitely written piece in the anthology.
The clunkers are “Locker 33C,” “A Short History of the Counter Monks,” “The Girl sits on the Hard Ground,” and “Love Blossoms—The Business at Hand,” this last being so incoherent and poorly written, that its inclusion casts a pall on the entire anthology.
Although I was doubtful at first that an anthology of stories without a common thematic thread would be a good idea, I soon found that it was quite interesting to finish one story and then move on to the next without any expectations whatever. All in all, the setup worked. A commendable effort.
