it was ok
Read in October, 2011

A mixed bag. I originally picked it up for the Neil Gaiman stories (which I realize I've read in other collections) and the China Mieville story (which was brand new to me). The real gem, in my opinion, is Natalie Babbitt's "The Power of Speech." I didn't know she could be so hilarious! I read it to my 10-year-old daughter who shrieked with laughter. Then, this 10-year-old, who usually steers clear of anything remotely creepy, requested that I read her another tale from this book. (I didn't like Holly Black's "Reversal of Fortune" as much, but it seemed the be the only other non-scary, non-creepy tale)

Also, there's an amazingly disturbing story by sci-fi writer Theodore Sturgeon.
