McAuley, Melanie Tem, Jane Yolan,, et el. over 50 entries, coming in at over 640 pages and over 250,000 words.Review: More sketches than tales are Steve Resnic Tem and Melanie Tems fantastical The Man on the Ceiling and Greer Gilmans poetic Jack Daws Pack. Jack Danns Marilyn proves the film star should be given a moratorium. Fine folk tales by Erdrich, Claudia Barbosa Nogueira and Nalo Hopkinson demonstrate the value of brevity. Jack Ketchum is painfully and unusually poignant in a brief story of loss, Gone, while Campbell satirically points up the inadequacies of specialty publishers in No Story in It. And the late Howard Wandreis tale of jealousy and revenge, George Is All Right, is as creepy as they come. This anthology is an essential volume for anyone who values quality in fantasy and horror today. --Publishers Weekly. Original List Price 29.95.
