      The copy is very excited about being sardonic I was drawn in by promises of stories by Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Pat Murphy, Pat Cadigan The Murphy story was actually quite sweet, a strange contrast to the rest that had a nasty edge, some of them downright icky There was a game that Jeffrey Ford was playing with run on sentences that appeared several times Glad he was enjoying himself.

    2. le-trombone says:
      The thematic drive behind this anthology is, according to the introduction, to refute the claim that the genre of SF or short fiction in general stopped being fun Most of the stories do indeed meet this goal the few exceptions are so head scratchingly unqualified that one does wonder just what happened The Teb Hunter by Allen Steele A hunting trip to bag bioengineered former pets Ecologically they re an invasive pest, but Coyote Goes Hollywood by Ernest Hogan The story finds the Coyote of myth, [...]

      Perf for a 90s chick Read through it fairly quickly Savage Breasts, breast of all Wild Girls makes me feel like Topanga doing free verse Fox and her father are enchanting on that same note.Pat Murphy is generally a good writer, so in spite of the run ons, I found myself totally buying Corso and Stiljack s psychosis I should only hope to make it out to the other side

    6. Amanda says:
      So, despite this book s promises, I was greatly disappointed There were a few I enjoyed Cadigan s and Pat Murphy s but I ended up skipping most of them.
