The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

Good plot, interesting twists. Engaging main character. Fringe science is fun. Some of it will make more sense if you read "14" first, but not essential.

If you’re a fan of fiction that is more than just black and white, this latest story collection from number-one New York Times best-selling author George R. R. Martin and award-winning editor Gardner Dozois is filled with subtle shades of gray. Twenty-one all-original stories, by an all-star list of contributors, will delight and astonish you in equal measure with their cunning twists and dazzling reversals. And George R. R. Martin himself offers a brand-new A Game of Thrones tale chronicling one of the biggest rogues in the entire history of Ice and Fire.

Most stories & readers were excellent (5*) Fun variety of characters & genres. A couple were tedious, surprisingly including GRR Martin's prequel to Song of Ice & Fire - like reading the "begats" in Genesis. Ah, well. But many authors I now want to read more of. Happily, each story begins on a chapter break, so it's easy to skip a story you dislike. Well worth it.
