  1. I m not rating this as the story line is far from my normal genre but I happened on it and decided to give it a try The characterization of Miss Carstairs was good and the development of the merman was interesting But the rest of the story was like a biology read as she s dissecting not literally and learning about a species I found the story a bit dry.Free read from Fantasy Magazine fantasy magazine new n


  2. These Datlow Windling collections were the best bests ever I ve totally lost track of which ones I ve read and which ones I haven t, though This one was definitely new to me and most of the stories were new to me as well and mostly excellent.The Year in question here was 1989 Apparently a good year for short stories The book also includes a quite long round up summation of pretty much everything in the genre published that year, including films The Edge of the World Michael SwanwickThis is so ni [...]


  3. A woman gets gang raped by zombies in this Seriously I don t know why the book s title isn t Gang Raped By Zombies because that mental image blows all of the other stories out of memory Even while you re reading the other stories all you can think of is that gang rape by zombies scene.That s the only reason this gets two stars and not just one The gang rape by zombies thing I m surprised that I wasn t mentally ill enough to think of writing such a story first.Now on to serious issues infecting [...]


  4. Science, sensuality, and strange, strange reproduction Miss Carstairs captures a merman and begins to study the creature She soon establishes a sort of telepathic link, learning about the merman in great detail Of course, being a woman in the sciences, she will have to document her discovery most carefully, in order to be believed, and perhaps the best way to prove her claim will be to take apart the creature once she is done with its mind.The real stand out part of this story is the description [...]


  5. Sorry for virtually the same review on whole anthology setI own a softcover edition signed by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling not for sale.I started this anthology with the 5th Annual and I loved it so much I started collecting the whole set including finding copies of those before it.What sets this anthology apart from many others is that I always find two or three gems within its pages, many liked stories and very few I have to force myself through More importantly, from those people I have no [...]


  6.

  7. I love Miss Carstairs a 19th century spinster biologist with a slight lack of empathy problem On a rainy night, she sees a strange creature beached on a rock beside the ocean Bringing it inside to study, she realizes what she thought was a dead, unknown sea creature is actually a very much alive merman Excited about her discovery and the possibilities of becoming famous in the scientific community, she sets out to study and analyze the merman like any good biologist would do, but of course some [...]


  8. This is an older collection, from 1990, I believe Found at a used bookstore, there are stand out stories by Ramsey Campbell, Joe R Landsdale, Tanith Lee, Jane Yolen, Dan Simmons, Charles De Lint and Michael Moorcock I in particular love A Dirge for Clowntown by James Powell, Cat in Glass by Nancy Etchemendy, Varicose Worms by Scott Baker and Your Skin s Jes s Soft and PurtyHe Said Page 243 by Chet Williamson Fantastic, horrifying, funny and bittersweet, you ve got a great selection of great stor [...]


  9. This series has significantly gone downhill in the recent years due to the advent of urban horror and fantasy This seems to me to defeat the purpose of reading fantasy if I wanted urban horror and fantasy I can just hang out in the Tenderloin from 12 to 2 AM instead Check out volumes 2 5 for quality stories.


  10. I ve read Shave and a Haircut, Two Bites of 1989 by Dan Simmons from this volume And I have to say that it s another good vampire story of his, side by side with Children of the Night 1992 only the first one is shorter He s got the feeling of the subject and knows how to deliver it wich in my opinion is good especially when you writing about things that do not exists.


  11. Weirdly that is the second mermaid story that I read tonight weird There do seem to be a theme of publishing merpeople and selkie stories.I really liked the characterization of Miss Carstairs, but the plot itself left me kind of cold
