2012 - Alisa Krasnostein and Ben Payne

A solid and well polished anthology. At 3.36 and no weak stories a cut above the run of the mill original theme anthology, presuming you don't mind very near future SF of course. Or hate Australia (feel free to shoot yourself into the sun, now, if you do).

A little better than I thought it would be, and if you want to get highly specific, call it a 3.65 out of 5.

I like the Flinthart the most. Speaking of most, this lot largely has books, Flinthart is just as talented, if not more than some, so hopefully he'll get one too, Angel Rising notwithstanding.
