I've got a story in this - originally accepted for publication in Black Gate but since I've two more stacked to appear before that I would probably have been an old man before it appeared.

It's a good tale IMOHO - check it out!

& there's a huge bunch of very talented authors between these e-covers with all the $$$ going to a great cause, so go & buy it!

I'm a contributor to the anthology so instead of a a review I'll give some background on the piece I've submitted:

My piece is called "Traditions." It's based on the world of Elan (the setting for my Riyria Revelations series) but it features a new never-before-seen character. The idea came from Shirley Jackson's famous short story, "The Lottery" where the livelihood of a town is dependent on the sacrifice of one of their own. When Annie is selected, she takes matters into her own hands and dares

A collection of short stories put together for Hurricane Sandy relief. I will give one sentence reviews for each story within as I read them.

Mark Lawrence creates a fascinating alternate earth in the span of a short story about a haphazard boy who finds his focus.

Ryan Kaelin's glimpse of his magical world showcases the suspense and beauty found within his novels.

Tim Marquitz writes a story of an obstinate soul's struggle between choosing retribution or forgiveness during his last chance to find

I don’t read a lot of short stories. I find it hard to get into a story only for it to be over by the time I’ve finally gotten excited about it.

However, this anthology was filled with several stories that made me crave more! I haven’t read them all yet. There are a lot of shorts in this anthology, but the ones I’ve read have made me look up the author to look for more of their work.

If you’re interested in a collection of eclectic stories and want to test drive several authors, this is the way to

Well, heck. As some of the other authors/contributors are weighing in on this...

It was a lot of work during a very difficult period in my life (my father is battling larynx cancer at the moment and has moved in with us for the end), but I'm very proud to have pulled this together.

We're approaching the $2000 mark at this point with presales + sales from the first two days. All money is going to Hurricane Sandy relief.

Good stories. Good book. Good cause.

I helped edit this anthology, so I'm a bit bias.

I think it rocks and I think all of YOU should buy it, and enjoy some great stories while helping people effected by Hurricane Sandy get their lives back.

I contributed a story to this anthology, which will benefit the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief. It was an honor to be a part of it, and I hope everyone will buy it and help support a worthy cause.

It's hard for me to review this since there were so many stories.
I'll just say that there wasn't 1 story that I disliked. Of course there were some I liked more than others, but I thought this was a great compilation! I definitely recommend.

a great cause and a great collection of well written snapshots.

I have a story in this anthology that I'm quite proud of. It's set in the same world as a number of short stories I've published or am planning to publish. The most recent was in Time-Traveled Tales: The 2012 Origins Fiction Anthology...

This book is a steal for how many great stories and authors there are in it, and the proceeds all go to charity. I would say get it while you can.

Tl;dr version: A solid collection of new SF/F stories, all for a good cause. This was put together in a hurry, to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. For that, I’ll forgive a number of typos I saw; they were pretty minor anyway. The stories are very good for the most part, and some are excellent. There really isn’t a bad egg in the whole carton.

See below for comments on each story, if you don’t find that idea too painful:

“Old Leatherwings” by Elizabeth Bear. This was a decent story, though the

Kind of lackluster stories - didn't really enjoy any of them. The authors I like had decent little stories but this book seemed a bit more bizarre story wise than some of the other anthologies, and I didn't have much fun reading it. However, it was for a good cause and I have no regrets with the purchase.
