it was amazing

I feel like I got away with something sneaky in purchasing this collection. How is it possible to pay such a small cost for such an enormous amount of excellent reading? There were only two stories I didn't like, and that was simply a personal thing, not because of a problem with the writing.

My favorites were:
The Hanging Game by Helen Marshall
Please Undo This Hurt by Seth Dickinson
Terminal by Lavie Tidhar
This World is Full of Monsters by Jeff Vandermeer

I'm not sure how the title was chosen for this anthology, but it really doesn't fit the deep emotional and insightful interiorality of these tales. Each one was like riding inside the mind of someone struggling or in wonder or both. Okay, maybe I just answered my own question.
