This is an impressive collection Strong, well written, and intriguing The writing is consistently good throughout while the individual pieces are excellently varied in style, tone, and impact Some are deliciously humorous, some are hauntingly tragic, and some are unsettlingly horrifying A wonderful mix of excellent writers and stories There is just so much to like here.
There s something in here for everyone, and I mean everyone all styles and genres litfic, horror, humor, sci fi, you name it This also means you probably won t like every story, but it s a meaty, worthwhile survey of what s out there today in terms of short fiction by women authors Since many of the stories are flash 1,000 words or fewer , I ll only list a few of my favorites Also, there are a few stories with a lot of violence, and a few dystopic this is a society in which women must all wear t [...]

This was sort of an uneven collection in that some stories didn t appeal to me My favorite stories were by Gwen Beatty and Rebecca Jones Howe those were great.
