“… within its pages there is something for everyone who enjoys reading speculative fiction.” —Brenton Tomlinson

“… there’s a very great deal here to be enjoyed and a handful of stories that are genuinely excellent.” —Martin McGrath, The Fix

“Like good wine … each story deserves to be savoured before going onto the next one. If you don’t, there’s a tendency for a little blurring, mostly because there isn’t a bad story in this collection.” —Geoff Willmetts,

“… there should be something here for just about everybody.” (8/10 rating) —Charles Packer, Sci-FI Online

“Editor Pete Butler and the team at PARSEC Ink have done a commendable job of gathering a wide assortment of enjoyable tales. The tome contains a pleasant mixture of published pros and first-time authors. While the book is worth the asking price, its only drawback is it leaves readers wanting just a little bit more … maybe twenty-five stories for next year’s edition.” —Kyle White, The Harrow
