I truly, truly enjoyed this anthology. So much so that I have to give it 5 tombstones. With 13 stories to choose from, it was difficult to only pick a few stories to highlight in this review. I probably could have mentioned each and every one of them and I found something to like in all 13...

I primarily bought this book because of the Anton Strout story "The Fourteenth Virtue." It's a short back story from his Simon Canderous world, and we learn a little more about the F.O.G.gies and some surprising "facts" about Benjamin Franklin.

The other short stories are terrific as well. Frankly, I haven't met an anthology edited by Martin H. Greenberg that I didn't like. He's definitely the reigning king of antholo

Interesting assortment of stories. Got me to think about scenarios I had never considered before. Would read again.
Didn't get to the book quickly enough; returned it unfinished and overdue to the library after already renewing it twice.
