Synopsis

In the media

The editors of this remarkable book, Jeff VanderMeer and Mark Roberts, have set out shamelessly to parody our learned and noble profession . . . the results are often hilarious.
The Lancet
One can always count on Jeff VanderMeer for his imaginative approach to fiction and the collections of stories he gathers as editor ... Now, along with co-editor Mark Roberts, VanderMeer has produced one of his most original and sumptuously fabricated collections to date.

There's a sense of fun to this book that's quite... well... infectious ... a shining example of what an anthology should be: a seamless collaboration of inventive minds which comes together in a whole that is significantly greater than its individual parts
