Like Dan Simmons and Thomas Pynchon, the range and off-hand knowledge of "behind the scenes" backstories Shirley drops borders on the astonishing ("Where did he GET all this stuff?").

Reading this, I felt like Martin (on The Simpsons) playing the My Dinner with Andre video game (when all the other kids at the arcade are playing Terminator 2, or what-have-you), pushing the joystick forward and hitting the "Tell me MORE!" button.

The stories in this collection are well written and unforgettable. I still go back and reread "Skeeter Junkie" from time to time. Truly great fiction.

I have read three of his short story collections, and although stories overlap between the three, each story is indelibly in a perfect spot in each. I only wish I had found these books earlier!
