Read full description of the books:



There are some really gorgeous stories in this collection. Some voices I really connect with that tug at my gut and leave me needing to take a deep breath at the end and let myself drift back to the present.
A couple stories left me unsettled though, and somewhat disturbed. "Floods" stands out as one such story; it left me with an oily film on my mind and I couldn't quite shake the characters out of the corner of my eye. A mark of a good storyteller, for sure, but the subject matter was tough to swallow and the inclusion of this particular piece in this collection felt a little jarring and out of place.
I also think I would have felt more satisfied by the book if it had a wider scope. As a queer mid 20sish Canadian girl who's a hippie at heart and can identify with punk and anarchist communities, I found I could easily identify with a lot of the authors represented here, likely because many of them are (or represent through their characters) queer folks in their mid-20s living on the fringes in Toronto and Montreal. A different name, or a more specific one, could have tied it together and made it feel more complete. As an anthology about geeks, misfits, and outlaws, it's a little lacking in its breadth.
