Some of these stories are an exercise in redundancy and are totally unnecessary, which is why this doesn't get a 5. That said, there are at least three stories in here that blew my skull straight open. "Octet" is amazing, if also redundant, and then there's this other one written in a really lyrical style whose name I forget but is awesome. The first story is great too.
