I listened to this on audiobook. This was my first Ed Gorman read. Like most collections, this has some terrific stories and some real stinkers as well. The collection started off incredibly strong but quickly began to fall off with a majority of the tales being mediocre or below average. The mixture of mystery, crime/noir, science fiction, and horror amongst the tales was a nice change of pace. Gorman is a good writer with an interesting imagination.
