Was dithering on whether to rate this one a 3 or 4. Just over half of the 30 stories worked for me, though anthologies always have some you like, some you don't. of those I was a bit iffy on several, because I really detest both plot errors and Deus ex machina, but it seems modern writers and editors don't mind such things, so I'm trying to detract less for such.
Since I'm such a voracious reader, I have to throw some weight to value as well, so the fact that it's about 600 pages for 6 bucks helps. ( )

Thirty stories here; I had read three of them before, two of which I ranked bottom of their category in the 2010 Hugos but the third, Lucius Shepard's "Sylgarmo's Proclamation", I rather enjoyed. Most of them I enjoyed a lot more, with a particular shout to Robert Charles Wilson's "This Peaceable Land, Or, The Unbearable Vision of Harriet Beecher Stowe", in which the American Civil War never happened and slavery is abolished by more unpleasant means; Anne Leckie's "The Endangered Camp", with spacefaring dinosaurs; R. Garcia y Robertson's "Wife-Stealing Time", set among barbarians on Barsoom; and best and creepiest of the bunch, Kelly Link's "Secret Identity" where a teenager's attempt to rendezvous with her much older lover turns into an unexpected encounter with superheroes.
