Her voice was his only link with sanity. It was a beautiful voice. He never really thought what she might be.

"Suzy, Suzy, Suzy!"

Whit Clayborne looked at the luminous face of the bulkhead clock for the hundredth time that day. Sweat started out on his forehead, and he gripped his face with a convulsed hand, moaning in helpless anguish.

"Suzy, Suzy, Suzy!"

The clock clicked impersonally in the darkness, and Whit moaned again.

The cold. The darkness. The quiet. And the solitude. But there was always Suzy, linking him to the earth so many miles away.

I skimmed a few of these, and wasn't caught up. I got this for Valente's Fairyland 0.5 story, and read Neil Gaiman's story as well. Those were great. But all in all it didn't engage me like some other anthologies.

Some stories were better than others, but overall, it's a solid read. I only skipped one: The Last Sophia, by C.S.E Cooney. It was from the perspective of a woman who was in & out of reality, but the attempt to create that narratively was just confusing.

The best of the bunch, in my opinion: "The Man

One of those weird years?

I hope so anyway, because this series is one that:
A. I haven't read before, this being the first
B. Seems full of a lot of stories I did not read elsewhere.

the girl who ruled fairyland, for a little while

the summer people
the cartographer wasps and the anarchist bees

The stories I really liked were:

"The Sighted Watchmaker" by Vylar Kaftan
"The Choice" by Paul McAuley
"Windows in the World" by Gavin J. Grant
"The Summer People" by Kelly Link
"Mulberry Boys" by Margo Lanagan
"Woman Leaves Room" by Robert Reed
"The Last Sophia" by C.S.E. Cooney
"The Cartographer Wasps and

Two stories really stand out to me. The rest wasn't that special. And then there were quite a few which seemed totally out of place in a SF&F collection where the fantasy is reduced to the supernatural set into our regular world.

Some gems: The Sandal-Bride, The Sighted Watchmaker, The Choice, The Ma

I love anthologies like this because they are a great way to find new authors! I bought this mostly for the Neil Gaiman story, which turned out to be disappointingly short, but there were several others I really liked too, especially the last and longest story.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5-Star Highlights:

5. The Girl Wh

A few stories were okay. A lot of them were over-descriptive and very hard to get through with very little reward for doing so. (there is always also the strong possibility that I'm just not on the same level with all these elite thinkers) I got about halfway through and couldn't get motivated to re
