Praise for the series:
“a must-read for fans of science fiction, fantasy, and short stories in general” - Booklist
“Best in this context is more than its constituent parts, it's a demonstration of all that can be found: diversity of voice, subject and form; balance between new and established voices; work from a good range of original sources... Books as good as this should be of interest to any admirer of short fiction, regardless of genre.' The Guardian
”…a provocative anthology that will satisfy readers looking for fresh, contemporary work that stretches both SF and fantasy boundaries” Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
