Every story in this book is terrific. My very favorite was "Human Intelligence" by Kurt Anderson. I also loved "Cult of the Nose" by Al Sarrantonio and "Samantha's Diary" by Diana Wynne Jones. When I got this book I didn't realize all the stories were sci-fi, horror type stories (I like these stories only sometimes) but it didn't matter, they were all so good. I love short stories and will treasure this book. (And isn't the cover illustration by Tom Gauld wonderful too?)

I love short stories that give me a sample of other authors writing style. There have been several times that I have purchased a collection of short stories or an anthology and ended up getting hooked on some of the authors after reading one short piece. One great thing about this book is that it covers a wide array of genres which kept my attention better than other books with short stories. My favorites in this book were: THE TRUTH IS A CAVE IN THE BLACK MOUNTAINS by Neil Gaiman THE KNIFE by Richard Adams UNWELL by Carolyn Parkhurst THE THERAPIST by Jeffery Deaver THE CULT OF THE NOSE by Al Sarrantonio I really enjoyed this book. There were a few stories I could have done without, but other than that, it's a winner. I give it 4 stars.

Great collection of different genres compiled with an eye for intrigue. I never really wanted to put it down. Evn those stories that began slow left me wondering and partly stunned by the end.

There were a few stories that seemed long winded and unnecessarily detailed, but for the most part excellent. Definitely found some new authors to consider.
