What a lovely, wide-ranging collection. There were stories (and a few poems) in here that went back about 15 years and they're all good. I should mention that we published a chapbook of Mark's stories, Foreigners, and Other Familiar Faces, a few years ago and this collection includes a few stories reprinted from LCRW. But what can I say? I read this book for the same reason we published his chapbook: I like Mark's writing. Mark's one of those guys who see the world a little differently from everyone else. Ok, maybe him and Ray Bradbury are sometimes on the same wavelength. I read this a story or two at a time over a couple of weeks and I recommend it to you, too. Yep, you.
