An excellent cross section of bite-sized short stories...some will make you think, some will make you smile, some will make you squirm, some will make you want to know more, but all will make you glad you bought this book.
Barnaby Wilde's imagination is in full flight here, with an extremely wide range of stories, including fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, supernatural, everyday situations, and the wonderful Shaggy Dog Story. I particularly liked the series of stories from the Vertigo Research Labs.
They are all well-written, with some excellent descriptions which take the reader right to the heart of each scene. In many cases I felt I was actually there...and in some of the stories that was perhaps a little too uncomfortable (I'm thinking of the guy trapped in the magician's cabinet, and the one in his orange onesie in a completely featureless landscape).
In short -- there isn't a story here that I didn't like...and that's most unusual for me. This book has spurred me on to produce my own collection short stories --
