    1. Uno de los grandes méritos de Tim Pratt es hacer que el lector suspenda su incredulidad y acepte como parte del relato las premisas más increíbles. Y entonces da una vuelta de tuerca más.Como en todas las colecciones el nivel es desigual y hay relatos mejores y peores (¿cómo es posible que no tenga ningún atajo de teclado para escribir esta frase?). "From Around Here", "The Crawlspace of the Word" o "Another End of the Empire" son auténticas joyas ("Antiquities and Tangibles" que da tí [...]

    2. I'm used to Tim Pratt's stuff being pleasant and easy to read, and this was no exception. It made a great book for the commute to and from the city every day, with smooth, well-drawn situations and clever executions. A couple stories that particularly stood out, for me, were "From Around Here" (the story of a being with a symbiotic relationship to *place*, which I just find to be a really neat trope to work with); "Another End of the Empire" (a case of an evil warlord trying to avert a prophecy [...]

    3. Short story collections are usually only as good as their weakest story. Well, I either liked or loved every story in here. I'm going to be very dull and give my rating for each story in the volume.The River Boy - 4The Secret Beach - 4.5Luminous - 5Artifice & Intelligence - 4.5Fiddle - 4Troublesolving - 5A Programmataic Approach to Perfect Happiness - 4.5On a Blade of Grass - 5 (this was the only one I'd read before and it's as brilliant now as it was the first time)The Haunted Mech Suit - 4 [...]

    4. I´d say it may work for Tim Pratt's fans, to explore his short-fiction more exhaustively. For me, the ones I find more interesting are Right Turns and The Crawlspace of the World, which I found variations on a similar topic, but achieving to transfer to the everyday life (and regular emotions we can all relate to) a fantastic element, both original (to a certain degree, of course) and disturbing. Also, Her Voice in a Bottle, maybe the most personal short-story.

    5. While a few of these were a little self-referential for my taste, in general I was completely engrossed by this collection, and kept reading story after story even after telling myself I was just going to read one.Also, I was a contributor to the kickstarter to get this published, and it's always a tiny delight to see my name—spelled correctly no less, which is all too rare—in support of a delightful project like this one.

    6. Pratt excels at deft world-creation and poignant thrusts to the heart, and never falls back on the expected solution to a narrative problem. I was at different times reminded of Wells, John Collier, Borges, Avram Davidson, and many others all good reminders. I especially like "The Secret Beach" and "The Frozen One" in this collection, but all readers will have their own favorites.

    7. A very enjoyable collection of fantasy and science fiction short stories. As in any collection some stories appeal more than others but here there are very few if any stories that I didn't enjoy.My favourites included: The River Boy , The Secret Beach, the title story, From Around Here and a new Marla Mason story entitled Cages.

    8. En realidad 4.5 estrellas.Brilliant collection of stories. "Troublesolving", "A Programmatic Approach", "Unexpected Outcomes", "Right Turns", "The Dude Who Collected Lovecraft", "From Around Here", "The Crawlspace of the World", "Another End of the Empire" are among my favorite ones.

    9. Gran recopilación de relatos de fantasía moderna. Siempre es un placer culpable leer a Pratt. Es como tomar una limonada sentado en una silla playera mientras observas trabajar a algunas personas bajo el sol.

    10. Great collection. Haven't been keeping up with the short fiction world, so it's wonderful to have Tim's more recent works gathered up. Loved the new stories as well.

    11. Tim's stories are always fantastic. This collection is no exception to that rule. If you aren't reading Tim Pratt, you should be.

    12. This is a fantastic collection of stories. They vary quite a bit in length, from a few pages to 50 and 90. Each of them is interesting in its own way and the writing is compelling in every one.
