3.5* all up. Worth the read. Loved some, didn't enjoy others but overall thought the standard high. The horror ones felt a little 'sameish' but that may relate to the genre as I'm more of a fantasy reader. There were a few very strong horror stories but many began to become dull, following a basic structure here of gradually increasing the horrific elements and then adding a twist at the end.

3.5* Caution: Contains Small Parts by Kirstyn McDermott. Solid, run of the mill, horror story. Liked it.

Not a review as such - just thought I'd mention a few stories.

Really like the following:'Black Swan Event' by Margo Lanagan, 'Sticks and Stones' by Ryan O'Neil, 'After Hours' by Thoraiya Dyer, 'Wyrding Women' by Rowena Cory Daniels, 'The Ninety-Two' by Claire McKenna and 'The Nest' by C.S. McMullen.

For me the absolute standouts ,all great stories, are 'Born and Bread' by Kaaron Waaren, 'Almost Beautiful' by Angela Rega, 'The Oblivion Box' by Faith Mudge and 'By Bone Light' by Juliet Marilier.

Took my time with this one. Overall, 4 stars is probably the fairest rating. I loved Juliet Marillier's story "By Bone-Llght", which was the final story in the anthology. Subtle, perfectly paced and with a hint of magic, both dark and light.
