Matt
A very difficult collection to rate. There are five amazing stories ("Bunnymoon", "Healer", "Five-Minute Hearts", "Transcription", "Irregularities"). I was indifferent at best for the other twelve. The five stories were so good that I'm tempted to give this three stars, but I just can't reward a collection that much when I didn't even enjoy a third of the stories.
Siri
As a whole, I was not very impressed with this collection. However, there were a few stories that were quite good and authors I would be interested in reading more by. I think my favorite story in the collection would have to be What is Visible by Kimberly Elkins.

It's hard to judge a short stories book. Some of these are excellent, some I didn't really get, but there are definitely some great artists in there.
