Nick's second collection features 22 stories mixes horror, SF, politics, and attitude. Each story is so different than the rest, which is what I admire most about Nick's work. He's always willing to take a risk, even willing to piss off the reader, to ensure that each story is a different reading experience. Sharp, funny, intelligent, disturbing, never safe. Favorites include (some of which I've blogged about individually in the past) "Joey Ramone Saves the World," "Summon Bind Banish," and "Real People Slash."
