's review

it was amazing

#16 in my Top 20 Books I Read in 2015:

An all-star team of super dope writers comes together to try and bring back from the dead that slender beast that is the American Genre Short Story.
Some people in here did not really get what they were supposed to be writing, some were clearly unable to stop being all intellectualish and just put a plot in what they wrote, but most wrote stuff that's purely brilliant. Also because, well - Chabon, Leonard, King, Moorcock... some of the world's best writers are here.

Were such things still published on a monthly basis, I would read every single number. This is exactly the stuff I adore.
Just look at the motherfucking cover and tell me you can resist this book.

Best stories? My main man Chabon's of course (Michael, seriously, write a full novel about it, no, a motherfucking saga), Moorcock's, Nick Hornby's, Elmore Leonard's.
