Matt Dovey is very tall, very English, and probably drinking a cup of tea right now. His surname rhymes with "Dopey"; any other similarities to the dwarf are purely coincidental.

But overall the anthology is just average. The clever twists are good but don't shift any paradigms, and the characters are competent but not new or innovative. None of the stories is particularly compelling. It was worth reading, but just to see what the competition is up to, not to learn new things.
Images Across a Shattered Sea - an intriguing back and fourth of causality as the present attempts to spy upon the future. A thinking piece that keeps a good pace.
Jack of Souls - a straight forward fantasy piece about a cursed card shark. It is a satisfying take on underdog good vs evil.
The Broad Sky Was Mine; And the Road - a beautifully written sci-fi action piece, like if Shakespeare wrote Transformers. I dug this one particularly.
Squalor and Sympathy - I only got a taste of this one, but what I got was nice writing and the promise of an industrial revolution fantasy story.
I bought the full edition and am looking forward to the rest. All in all quality writing across styles and subjects from up and coming writers. Enjoy.
Over all it is a pretty normal Science fiction and fantasy collection but with new authors and some amazing pictures. It is geared towards writers and artists with chapters on how to write and some hilarious ones at the end on art critics. Since I am not a writer or an artist it still enjoyed the book and will look forward to next years edition of it.
