The title of this anthology sets the pace for this ingenius

work of literary art. It is what caught my attention and it did not let me down. Each and every story brings the reader into the heart of the the civil war battlegrounds.In a sense it is about coping with the 'uncivility' of a situation that was indeed difficult for the people living through it. Then again some lived through it and some did not; but all those who died were not victims of battle.It would be hard to pick a favorite from among the sixteen contributing authors; many of whom wrote specifically for this anthology. The theme that comes through is that through the hazy smoke of battle; through the enigma of brother against brother; through the blood that is spilled and the lives wasted...behind all this people continue to lead their lives in a most 'uncivil' manner in order to attain their immediate goals. The war is just a blur in the distance as they continue with their mundane lives; and do unto others what they would not want done to themselves.If you want to lose yourself in a fantastic world; if you want to be shocked and amazed; entertained and enlightened; pick this one up by the editor of a thousand anthologies, Martin H. Greenberg!
