Dreamworks - David King

An entirely unremarkable anthology, apart from a couple of funny bits in aunt simulation and Lake, and the presence of Greg Egan. This book is a 2.25 rounded up because I favour the latter sort of stuff.

This selection also renders his argument that the best writers are critics or academics a load of male bovine faecal matter. Not to mention the rest of reality, of course.
