"Odd, Deep, Delightful"

So says the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an in-depth review of Interfictions this week by Michael Bishop, who writes: "Editors Delia Sherman and Theodora Goss — practiced fiction writers as well as Ph.Ds in Renaissance studies and English literature, respectively — gather here 19 profoundly strange stories. From these airborne stories stream contrails of traditional realism, philosophical fable, literary fantasy, existential horror, transmogrified myth, off-center science fiction and unabashed slapstick. . . . [Interfictions] belongs on the nightstand of anyone interested in the development of contemporary short fiction."
