Nalo Hopkinson is one of my favorite writers ever, so I was really, really excited about the prospect of this anthology. I got it from the library when it first came out and never made it through, then I bought it on my roadtrip and it still took me months to finish it. I found it to be really choppy. The first third of the book was really slow, then there were several stories I really liked, then I lagged on finishing it. I still have about 20 pages left and I can't bring myself to pick it back up again right now, but I'm tired of seeing it on my currently-reading shelf. I love the ideas behind this anthology, yet I felt like a lot of the stories were excerpts from longer works that didn't really work as short stories for me. I was kinda disappointed. Meh.
