I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

According to the introduction, in all of these stories, the pivotal moments revolve around what the characters know. And nothing is more frightening to the world than a woman who knows things. We all know that knowledge is power, but knowledge is also a very versatile and broad concept, which means that the stories in this anthology were also very versatile.

Overall, I have to say that most of the stories were a solid 3-4 stars

I did not slip; that's five stars. And yes, this means this anthology has hit my "I don't care if you don't usually check out the genre, I really think you should check out this book" threshhold. This latest entry in the series is fantastic; dark, weird, hopeful, and funny by turns. Highly, highly recommended.
