This excellent collection features "Prayers on the Wind", WJW's best story to date, and lots more Good Stuff. As always, NESFA books are a pleasure to read & hold: smooth, creamy paper, solid, full-cloth bindings and exceptional cover & interior art, here by Omar Rayyan. Highly recommended. Essential reading for WJW fans. 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 for the A+ "Prayers."

Contents:
Introduction by Gardner Dozois. Excellent.

Solip:System (direct sequel to Hardwired). Kinda grim. My rating: B+;

A great collection of stories showing Walter's amazing range and versatility.

Has everything from fantasy to a sequel to Hardwired via super heroes (the first Wild Cards story ever), alternate histories of "Elvis", Lord Byron, and Well's Martians interrupting the Boxer rebellion.

I liked some of the stories in this better than others but most of them were pretty cool. Some of them have actually poked and prodded me toward reading other stuff of his that I would normally shy away from.
