This book provides an exciting preview of what we can expect from some very talented writers. Although I felt some of the stories were a bit week, I thoroughly agree with the initial reviewer's opinion that Winter Never Quits by T. Geronomo Johnson as being one of the highlights of this compliation. I have high hopes for things to come from this artist!
