A decent collection of short stories with no real bummer for me.

My favourites were:

"Zeitgeber" by Greg Egan with a great idea and execution - until the end which somehow felt as if it occured at the wrong moment and threw the story slightly off.

"Water: A History" by K.J. Kabza: even if the ending was no surprise this story convinced me with a perfect pace and structure. This is how a short story should be.

"The Last I May Know" by S.L. Huang: this dystopian piece about responsibility
