Scott Phillips ("the other one" who write Ice harvest)
and yhos, who also edited.

I think all are superb, of course, and that you will be wildly amused by them since they range from sf to horror, humorous to serious, fiction to nonfiction. And permutations of those. Available in print or ebook from Amazon or B&N

I'll admit, I am one of the authors, but I can say without nepotism, that the other stories in this book are phenomenal. Well worth a look for fans of almost every genre, as this covers all the bases.

This book was excellent all-around. I highly suggest it. The title tells you everything you need to know about the general topic of each story in this fabulous collection!
The hooker story was the only one I enjoyed. I think the one with the wind farm was well done, too, just not my type of story. I was not aware that only two of them were true stories. I skipped most of the cubicle farm one (crazy ranting, meh) and the sci-fi one because it was too dense with jargon.
Hands down this is the best anthology I have ever read. Every one of these 9 stories was expertly crafted and an engrossing read. All of these authors were new to me and I'm looking forward to reading more of them.
