I really enjoyed this collection. There are some of my favourite stories from past collections (I was especially glad to see 'Hag Ridden' included), as well as some new favourites (I definitely need to pick up a copy of 'Whitecoat'). With 19 stories of various lengths and about a variety of subjects, I'd hazard a guess that there's something in here for everyone.

At a time like this with things looking so grim financially for our province, it was comforting to read so many amazing stories and to see the level of creativity and storytelling we have right here at home.

Not for me I guess. None of the individual stories rate much above a meh and it doesn't work very well as a collection. Too many of the stories feel like snippets of something else and there is no real theme outside of Speculative Fiction from NL, which is fine but I like there to be some kind of thematic through line.
