A strong collection, although I liked rather than loved many of the stories. That said, I must register my continual gripe about literary fantasy anthologies eschewing secondary-world fantasy.

Favorite stories:
“Selkie Stories are for Losers” by Sofia Samatar
“A Kiss with Teeth” by Max Gladstone (I LOVED this story)
“The Cartographer Wasps and Anarchist Bees” by E. Lily Yu
“The Husband Stitch” by Carmen Maria Machado

Good collection, lot of range. I enjoyed all of them, but my favorites were "Madeline," by Amal El-Mohtar and "Our Lady of the Open Road," by Sarah Pinsker. YMMV.

It's an anthology, so it's uneven. But the high points were great.
