Read in September, 2009 , read count: 1

Many of the miniature tales in this collection are like nightmarish Faberge eggs: beautiful, intricate, and menacing. He somehow condenses a much larger story into a single page, and does an impressive job of fleshing out possible backstories for Jacek Yerka's surrealist imagery. Alas, the tone of most of the stories is shrill, but fans of Ellison have come to expect nothing less, I think.
