The best way to get me to read short stories is to let me think they are a novel. This is the best collection of short stories I've read. Egan is very creative and took many risks that paid off, in my opinion. The characters are flawed and kindly portrayed. The underlying theme of the goon squad is subtle. I know that I will be re-reading this book because there is so much to it.
