Really cool idea for an anthology
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 16, 2017
Really cool idea for an anthology. The book is beautifully put together (I love the page numbering at the bottom, super fun effect), and there's a good mix of stories. My favorite thing about this book is how different all the stories feel. It's a great example of a diverse group of writers starting in the same place and heading off in wildly different directions. Particular standouts for me included Betty Rocksteady and George Contronis' stories. Tony Burgess' "Bad Lieutenant" made for a fascinating read as well--the imagery felt like an acid trip, although I have to admit I still have no idea what's going on there. But yeah, PMMP is incredibly consistent about putting out high-quality product and this anthology is no exception. And the thing as, as radio continues to decline you have to think there's going to be some pretty bizarre stuff creeping into the spectrum. This anthology gives the reader a taste of just how weird the spectrum might get as radio is supplanted by podcasts and other forms of entertainment. Good stuff.
