As with most anthologies like this, some stories work better than others, but overall a worthwhile read. Noteworthy stories include Scott Johnson's "Harimoto," Carole Lanham's "Moribund Room," Johnathan Mayberry's amusing "Pegleg and Paddy Save the World, and Patrick Rutigliano's "A Touch of the Divine." Less effective were those stories that involved "stunt casting," placing historical or established fictional characters in the mix, including Raoul Wainscoting's "Theatre is Dead," James Roy Dale's "Summer of 1816," and John Peel's "The Loaned Ranger."
