In any short story anthology the reader will get a wide variety of styles and readablity. This book is no different. The editor include short biographies of the authors along with their background of how the story came about. Many of these stories were hard to follow and I honestly skipped over a portion of them. Others were fun to read, especially if you like stories of centaurs.

Pretty good set of stories. I'm brand new to the mag, and may check out some future stories. These stories were varied in style, topic, setting, etc., and inconsistent in quality (like most collections) but generally solid. They're all about the same length, and are medium in length for short stories. Most of the authors appear to be fairly new authors, and that is on display here. But, they have solid starts and potential, and this anthology is probably better than average overall.

I really appr
