An uneven collection, but some of the stories in here are very much worth reading. I'd definitely recommend trying it. I especially liked the Nisi Shawl story, and the one by Kevin Brockenbrough. Some of the stories seemed a little much of a muchness, a few days after reading them they sort of blurred together in my mind. But there were definitely five or so that stood out for me and at least a couple of authors I'm going to seek out. So if I get that much out of an anthology I'm satisfied.
