Mary Miller's Always Happy Hour is one of the year's finest short story collections, one filled with characters so realistically portrayed they seem personally familiar.

Selena Chambers' Calls for Submission is filled with an impressive variety of weird fiction and fully realized characters.

Kingdom of the Young is the brilliant new collection from Edie Meidav, one of the most talented prose stylists writing today.
