While I liked some stories more than others, I would say that the quality of stories in this anthology was very high. It contains an eclectic mix: two or three are what I might describe as hard science fiction, and then there are a whole bunch of ghostly/afterlifely stories. Jeffrey Ford channels Jonathan Carroll (who isn't dead, but seems open to channeling if anybody is). Caitlin Kiernan turns in an elegant story about a black hole. Nalo Hopkinson writes about the great shopping mall in the sky. Rachel Swirsky parties with the dead. Peter M. Ball crams androids, clones, and dragons into one story. Jo Walton follows a coin. Michael Swanwick takes a beautiful look behind the scenes. I don't want to say much more about any of these stories because they are all worth reading. Good stuff.
