Fast paced, each story flowing into the next. I was quite shocked when I reached the end. Well written and well put together. I look forward to whatever Christopher Bunn puts out next.

Many of these stories showed promise and they were well-written as far as they went. But they never lived up to that promise. Most of them felt like the beginnings of longer stories rather than complete works in themselves. Characters were sketchily introduced, situations were set up, action began . . . and then the story ended. Two of the stories read like anti-abortion screeds dressed up as sci-fi; I prefer my literary "lessons" to be a bit more subtle.

Very nice indeed. Loved the use of language, the first story was just beautiful, but I enjoyed the whole book.
