These are excellent and entertaining stories. All are well-written and could even be a guide for aspiring authors who are wondering what sort of stories could help get them published in contemporary speculative magazines. The folks at Crossed Genres tend to focus on powerful writing. Often, the mood takes over the story itself and is driven home by the prose … if you like a finely-crafted series of tales, written by authors who can tell a powerful and meaningful story, this is an anthology that you should seriously consider grabbing for yourself.
– Mike Griffiths, Innsmouth Free Press (Full review)
An environmental catastrophe unlike any other;
A most unusual dinner guest;
The irony of Luck.
