4.25. Great stories. And Canadian!
Ann Douglas
An always inspiring anthology of short fiction by Canadian writers. The two standout stories for me in this particular volume were Julie Roorda's "How to Tell if Your Frog is Dead" and Nancy Jo Cullen's "Hashtag Maggie Vandermeer." Really great stuff.

Nothing as risky as the stories in last year's anthology, but contains some good reads all the same.
