Anthologies are fun because you discover new authors. "Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned" by Wells Tower blew me away. "Sea Oak" by George Saunders also stuck with me. Also, I was briefly obsessed with the book's cover design.

Stephanie I was also totally blown away by Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned.

Katherine I am so glad that we can share that feeling of ravagedness, and burntness, together. Yeah I want to find Wells Tower and give him a big 'wow, thank you' kiss.

Christopher Mims Me three, that story blew me the fuck away. Like all my favorite books, I immediately forced this one on a friend and need to get another copy so I can re-read it. I think this will be the third time I've bought the book.
