So, I'm irritated. VERY irritated, because there isn't MORE of this anthology. I mean, c'MON. I'd never even heard of most of these writers before, and it's even more irritating that now I've got a whole new crop of must-read authors to buy. Actually, that's not really such a bad thing.
Jonathon Maberry leads off the story-telling with a run-of-the-mill noirish detective story that has a delightfully faithful feel to it, complete with a stinger in the tail that I did not expect, and which made it all the more fun. It's not often that the bad guys run into that sort of trouble. Brad Aiken's story points out the difficulties of tequila in the dark - after all, dawn eventually comes, and with it remorse, and sometimes, MORE trouble than the tequila was worth. Linda Addison's story is a neat little revenge-themed supernatural tale. From W. H. Horner comes an interesting little holiday tale that tells the story of a elf, a Situation and a very offbeat resolution to a perpetual problem. T. L. Randelman and Neil Levin come up with an intriguing answer to the age-old question of what's for dinner. Hildy Silverson's escalator reminded me of the old poem about the machines taking over the world, but with far deadlier consequences. Terri Osborne discourses on the difficulties of love, which is never an easy subject regardless of the century. KT Pinto's story about a different kind of punk is delightful in that it shows that no matter what you are, or where you go, there you are. Jeffrey Lyman points out the difficulties of tenure in a university setting, and reminds us of the difficulties of rationality in an irrational world. C. J. Henderson uses the police procedural to point out the difficulties of convincing folks that there really are monsters out there, even if you have convincing evidence of their existence. John Sunsori tells the tale of a very special group of soldiers. Diane Raetz and Patrick Thomas tell a quirky little gem of a tale of a vampire penguin from Coney Island that hooks up with a vampire reporter.
The stories in this book are all uniformly excellent. They are well-written and entirely enjoyable. The editing is excellent as well; unlike a lot of books and short stories that I've read lately, I did not find myself looking for spelling and grammatical errors. I'm really looking forward to looking up the writers and reading more of their longer works.
