This has been one of the best anthologies I’ve read so far. I love stories that tackle the science fiction, the supernatural in all its shape and sizes, and add a healthy dose of man on man loving to it! All the stories of this anthology are so unique and different that you can’t help being surprised, or taken aback, and certainly you will be entertained. Yet although some of these stories are fun and light, others will bring you to tears.

I couldn’t really pick favorites this time around. Some have been special to me though because they tugged on some special strings. I’ve been a Justin Gaylord fan since the very beginning, when Taylin and Lily told me of their stories, then they game me small bits (they are cruel like that), so I was so happy to finally read the whole story! He’s just amazing and his inner dialogue is to die for.

Jonas I’ve always found an interesting character, but Asta Idonea’s A Whale of a Time brought an interesting new spin on this Biblical story for the high-school student who still remembers the Romanian play inspired by it. And The Gift by Frostina? She’d warned me it was short, but how someone could sketch such compelling characters in less than 3000 words and link their lives in such a beautiful, heartbreaking way, that’s just amazing. Great debut for her!

These are however special mentions because of very personal aspects, I honestly enjoyed each and every story of this mind boggling collection that will test your grasp of reality. I strongly recommend you go get your copy right now and start reading!
