Caveat: My story is in here.

However, this review is really about the other stories. Cornell and Galuschak have put together a fine collection of classic and new authors, and just the right cross genre mix. Very few collections run the gauntlet of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and literary fiction in one place. The collection also runs the spectrum from absurd to heavily realistic. It's a gem of a collection. Looking forward to more offerings from Shohola Press.

(Disclaimer - this book contains one of my stories)

Call it 4.5 stars. I was very happy to see some old friends in this volume, and meet some new ones. The stories run the gamut from literary to science fiction to straight up horror, but they all manage to serve the central theme quite well.

This book represents some very good up-and-coming writers, and it's well worth checking out.
