really liked it
Read in March, 2009

Like any multi-author anthology, this book's got highs and lows. I can't say I loved every single story, but having an anthology for the New Weird movement (okay, okay, so it wasn't a movement) is really a great idea.

The Mieville and the Harrison stories were at the top for me, but I was also impressed by the stories by Jeffery Ford, Simon Ings, and K.J. Bishop. The whole round-robin story at the end was cool too.

A good way to check out the forefront of weird writing.
