A truly fun and funky anthology. Inspired re-tellings of old classics & truly excellent original stories from richly talented authors. A really excellent mix that kept me wanting more from beginning to end. Stand out favorites of mine were "Apex Jump" by David J Schwartz, "Subterraneans" by William Shunn & Laura Chavoen, "Such & Such Said to So & So" by Maria Dahvana Headley, and "Blood and Sequins" by Diana Rowland. My absolute favorite was "A Hollow Play" by Amal El-Mohtar. So good it hurts. If you're looking for a fun, diverse anthology, make sure you don't miss this one.
