Have to confess that I haven't read this book cover to cover yet. It is a really big book. This book was my text book from Into to fiction in college. I kept it because the value I get from actually reading it is a lot more than the bookstore was going to buy it back for.

I did read a lot of it. Most of it. Really. I was suprised at how many of my favorite authors had stories in here and also how many stories were mystery and Science fiction.

This will be the book I weeded out from the other anthologies to give to my intro to fiction students. Is it great? Nah, but it is a solid collection of short stories from a fairly diverse set of writers. You could do far worse for one of these mondo collections, especially when building a class with a focus that the smaller collections don't address, but it will never compare to something a little smaller and more focused collections, like Doubletakes, when teaching the craft of writing.

meh. do we really need to continue anthologizing "a good man is hard to find"? more importantly, do my professors really need to keep making me read it? also, did you really have to make a footnote defining Harlem? and Martin Luther King Jr.? i mean seriously, pickering.

i must say thanks though, for at least including a lorrie moore story that wasn't from self-help.
