I have maybe two more stories left, but enjoyed most of these. One left me questioning (a god stepped in at the end??), but all in all a very good read.

Loving this one. The second story is quite.. intimate. Didn't expect that in a SF antho.

A little outside my normal reading, I had to reread the ending to really get it, but I did enjoy it.

I love Bear's style and characters, but her endings often have "huh?" moments. I'd love to read Chill, the sequel to Dust, but I can't find it anywhere.

Really liked "Gone Black" and "The Shadow Man". Books seem heavy on SF rather than fantasy.
