“Kasturi and Villegas should be commended for casting such a wide net. With a whopping 37 pieces jammed into this anthology, there is surely something for everyone within these pages.”
“[Imaginarium 4] is often clever, with stories that showcase a singular concept, never losing focus, and following it through to the end . . . . Imaginarium 4 really shines when its stories get a little weird and question their own nature. These are the stories that are offered up shaken, not stirred, from some bottom-of-the-ocean sleep: they are having out-of-body experiences and living not just as stories but as answers to the question ‘What if?’”

The stories all vary. And many have an style that is all their own. David Nickle does the slight off kilter oddness that is always fascinating for me if also more than a bit unsettling. I find Atwood to be very Atwood. Sometimes to pleasure and sometimes to dismay.
Overall, this is full and eclectic collection of tales in style and, yes even in quality, though I think the few I did not care for all that much stemmed simply from not being my style. Overall I found the approach by all strong in terms of short fiction as sometimes I feel some authors have no business writing it (some authors I think have no business writing of any length but luckily I did not think any of the entries exhibited that flaw).
I strongly recommend this and throw in this, perhaps, added plus. Several of the authors that were new to me have additional work that is available on their websites or through free e-zines as well as in other collections. Just one find worth your while here can open up a trove of reading elsewhere. But even just on its own it is well worth the while.
