Review quote

"The standouts are the three central pieces: Kate Osias's 'The Unmaking of the Cuadro Amoroso,' in which an enclave of prodigies takes revenge on imperial war machines; Olivia Ho's 'Working Woman,' reexamining Frankenstein's monster amid the multicultural power brokers of Singapore; and Robert Liow's 'Spider Here,' a hard-SF adventure with a suicide bomber, illegal fights, and a disabled schoolgirl protagonist. Even the slighter stories have the craft, perspective, and components that merit savoring, and the finest would be worth considering for any year's best anthology." Publishers Weeklyshow more
