Another excellent collection of short stories and poetry from this trusted source of literature. The collection is admirably organized so that there is a natural flow to a disparate group of writers. The overall theme is well reflected in what are stories that cover the horizon of concepts.
What stands out in this collection is the originality of the works. There are several pieces that are so original, it makes a reader's jaw drop. In this day and age, almost every story has been developed already in some way. There are concepts in this collection that are mind-bending in originality.
The poetry is thoughtful and, like any good poetry, will mean different things to every reader. This is fresh material that is an easy read. Every fan of short stories will love this collection. I recommend this to anyone looking for a fresh approach to storytelling.
