    I really enjoyed this collection I didn t read it cover to cover, as you can tell from the liveblogging status updates, but I did end up reading every story in it I always feel a little embarrassed when I circumvent an editor s careful sequence of stories, but in this case I m glad I did I don t think I would have wanted to end on the last story in this book, which was The Master Miller s Tale by Ian R MacLeod I don t like my fantasy 1 emo or 2 mostly horror Stories I did really lik I really enjoyed this collection I didn t read it cover to cover, as you can tell from the liveblogging status updates, but I did end up reading every story in it I always feel a little embarrassed when I circumvent an editor s careful sequence of stories, but in this case I m glad I did I don t think I would have wanted to end on the last story in this book, which was The Master Miller s Tale by Ian R MacLeod I don t like my fantasy 1 emo or 2 mostly horror Stories I did really like were Light by Kelly Link, which reiterates what all of those people who ve been recommending Kelly Link to me have been saying about the wacky and interesting Teashop by Zoran Zivkovic, which was not as clever as it thought it was but which was still delightful, especially with the tea The Rope by Noreen Doyle, which was a little bit horror and a little bit non futuristic science fiction, but all in a really good way Stray by Benjamin Rosenbaum David Ackert, which has possibly the best characterization of an immortal mortal pairing I ve ever read, seriously Singing of Mount Abora by Theodora Goss, which was a shiny perfect fairy tale of a fantasy story Bufo Rex by Erik Amundsen, which was another excellent fairy tale A Diorama of the Infernal Regions by Andy Duncan, which was a really great use of a girl as a protagonist and The Cambist and Lord Iron by Daniel Abraham, although I m not entirely sure that this was a fantasy story per se

    A very enjoyable anthology with some great stories mostly read by me when originally published but also two or three new ones.The Goss and Abraham stories published originally in Logorrhea are outstanding, but I loved severalstories too including Zivkovic and McLeod.
