|About the Book|
Considering the stellar line-up of this anthology, one would think it would rate more than two stars. Shockingly, I couldnt get into most of these stories. In my opinion, there are a lot of great writers doing substandard work in this one. Not even Stephen King pulled through for me. (To be fair, it was an excerpt from my least favorite book by him, LISEYS STORY.) The stories I liked: Minnow by Ayelet Waldman, 7C by Jason Roberts and The Devil of Delery Street by Poppy Z. Brite. I also liked China Mievilles Reports of Certain Events in London, but only because of the way its structured. In the end, it turned out to be an unsatisfying story. I cant really recommend this one, despite the great authors involved.
