Review by: Kurt F. Kammeyer on Aug. 25, 2011 :
While most of these short stories are beautifully written, there were only a few that really grabbed me: "The Garden", "Salvation", "White Shell" and "Quietly" in particular.
"The Weather Here", "Calling and Election" and "Bread for Gunnar" are demented and rather disturbing. "Clothing Esther" is too personal and sacred, in my opinion.
"Hymnal" is a rather strange take on the end of the Universe. All in all, there's just enough good stuff here to make this anthology worth the price.
