Great

I'll keep it simple - this book is great. Buy it if it looks like your kind of thing, or even if it doesn't. I loved it times a thousand. The stories are among the best new stories I've read. There was only one of many stories that I didn't completely dig. It was definitely worth it.

Enjoyable collection

This was an extremly enjoyable collection of stories to read. This book was well put together with the stories they picked to make it with. I hope they put more out like this one. It never let me down not once.

Inspired writing--

Kudos to the editors and publishers of this wonderful collection for giving young writers a forum to "break in." I plan to use several of these stories in my tenth and eleventh grade American literature classes. They are as good as many of the "classic" stories I've come across in Best Of anthologies, the New Yorker, Esquire, etc... And they will show the aspiring writers in my classes that pursuing writing professionally is feasible with a little talent and a lot of persistence. William Clifford's "Scoring", Michelle Rick's "Next Time" and Dennis Dillingham's "The White Horse Carousel" are particularly inspiring, and even show flashes of brilliance. I look forward to seeing more from them.

An Exciting Compilation

An intriguing compilation of short stories. It reads like a trip through Wonderland, each story taking you for a ride through the rabbit hole, not quite knowing where you're going to end up next. I wouldn't be suprised to see many of these new authors on the best seller list in a few years.
