I was so excited to see this book on kindle. I've read the last two volumes as well. The increase in quality of stories has been amazing. Winners of the contest show awesome promise and I'm eagerly looking forward to their next work. Some of the stories that really stuck out for me were: The Unreachable Voices of Ghosts, The Truth From A Lie of Convenience, In Apprehension How Like A God, Bonehouse, This Peaceful State of War, and Medic!
I usually tend toward Fantasy stories, but the Science Fiction stories in this volume where just outstanding.
If you enjoy reading talent before they are famous this is the book for you.
The stories are disparate of theme and subject, but a common thread of wonder runs throughout. The writers are newly published, but nothing herein is amateurish. All of these authors have been vetted by the best names in speculative fiction and any one of these ten stories would be worth paying for.
I loved all these stories, but John Arkwright's "The Sundial," Lyman's "The Unreachable Voices of Ghosts," and Perin's "Medic!" stood out for me.
