I returned the book before I wrote this review, so I can't remember exactly all the stories. I liked the two (three? No, only two) Harry's All-Night Hamburgers ones - Why I Left... is excellent, A Flying Saucer with Minnesota Plates is amusing. The Hole one is...depressing, actually. I like the other Hole one, in Celestial Debris, better, though that also has its depressing aspects. There are various other parallel-world stories - lots of different ways and reasons to cross. I liked Monster Kidnaps Girl at Mad Scientist's Command - as Watt-Evans says, he tried to write a story where that would be an accurate headline. It's not, really, but it's New York Times or Washington Post inaccurate (slanted for sensation) rather than Inquirer inaccurate (made up out of whole cloth). And it has a happy ending. I enjoyed the descriptions and explanations as much as the stories - it's fun to see what the author thinks about his work. There was no one story, nor the whole lot combined, that was magnificent and made it necessary for me to own this book; but I'm glad I read it and I expect I'll reread it sometime.
