I truly, truly enjoyed this anthology. So much so that I have to give it 5 tombstones. With 13 stories to choose from, it was difficult to only pick a few stories to highlight in this review. I probably could have mentioned each and every one of them and I found something to like in all 13...

This is one of the best anthologies I've read in the past couple of years. All of the authors had very different takes on "the dimension next door", and that made it a treat.

I primarily bought this book because of the Anton Strout story "The Fourteenth Virtue." It's a short back story from his Simon Canderous world, and we learn a little more about the F.O.G.gies and some surprising "facts" about Benjamin Franklin. It's a great story, and a must-have if you are collecting the Canderous series.

The other short stories are terrific as well. Frankly, I haven't met an anthology edited by Martin H. Greenberg that I didn't like. He's definitely the reigning king of antholo

Interesting assortment of stories. Got me to think about scenarios I had never considered before. Would read again.
Didn't get to the book quickly enough; returned it unfinished and overdue to the library after already renewing it twice.
Please see for a review of this book.
