Here is another compendium of new fantasy and science fiction stories from north of the border (in Canada).

A mother, her teenage son, and two younger daughters seem to be the only survivors of a plague that has ravaged North America (Dad was not so lucky). Now the mother and son are faced with the difficult task of replenishing the population. A pair of high school students experiment with what looks like Michael Jackson’s glove. It can create portals in time, but the catch is that the portals o

A good compilation. Nothing mind-blowing, but good. I recommend you focus on the following:

- 'The Recorded Testimony of Eric and Julie Francis'
- 'The Azure Sky'
- 'Persephone's Library'
- 'If Giants are Thunder' -- (probably my favourite, and not coincidentally the most like classic fantasy)
- 'Phoebus 'Gins Arise'
- 'Bear with Me'
- 'Citius, Altius, Fortius'
- 'The Object of Worship'
- 'Language of the Night'

I particularly loved "Tofino" by Andrew Gray and "If Giants are Thunder" by Steven Mills. Other great stuff includes Kate Reidel's "Phoebus 'Gins Arise" and Jerome Stueart's "Bear With Me. And "Vampires of the Rockies" by Randy McCharles was just plain fun. :)

I'm sure I'm forgetting some others I enjoyed, but really it's all good stuff. An all around solid collection of spec fiction.

No stellar stories. I got done and thought - huh, if that's representative of Canadian fiction I'm not interested. That's a shame, since there's tons of great Canadian fiction. Doctorow writes great, but apparently falls short as an editor.

I liked this collection for the most part, but I found it a bit uneven. I'm not sure if I'd read the collection again, at least not all of it, but I did find out about several newer authors whose work I'll be looking for in the future.

I couldn't quite finish this book. It was somewhat interesting at first, but the stories quickly became tedious (and inane), so I packed it in.
