    1. Wow is the content quality inconsistent It probably hurts that I m not a big fan of fantasy sci fi most of the time The Budnitz, Bynum, Elliot, and Link stories were the best, but many of the others are positively inscrutable I like eccentric and I like whimsical, but in small doses and these ladies are not subtle Then again, this is probably not meant to be read all in one go, but dipped into over time However, Moody s essay on Angela Carter was worth the price of admission alone, but I walk aw [...]


    2. Some excellent stories and some mediocre stories But what I couldn t get past was the utterly bizarre alphabetical by last name sequencing Perhaps there is some misguided kumbaya or quasi cooperative notion in there, but really, what a waste It s the job of an anthology editor to sequence the stories in a way that itself tells a story Or at least creates some sort of rhythm or sense of dynamics or ripple of echoed themes, characters, or objects While I imagine the alpha by author sequencing was [...]


    3. I confess I did not read through this entire volume I will echo what many others have offered the selection here is very inconsistent I somewhat enjoyed to loved Jane Avrich, Aimee Bender always , Sarah Shun Lien Bynum, Mary Caponegro, Julia Elliott, Samantha Hunt, Miranda July, Kelly Link, Lydia Millet, Alissa Nutting, Paisley Rekdal, Stacey Richter, Gina Zucker, and the Rick Moody essay on Angela Carter The rest I found kinda boring or too muddled and glossed over Still, this was a good read f [...]


    4. Love the incredible cover enough to frame it Love the stories by faves like Kelly Link and Shelley Jackson and Samantha Hunt, as well as the ladies I ve meant to read and finally did here, like Lucy Corin and Rikki Ducornet Maybe most of all loved Rick Moody s piece on his teacher and friend Angela Carter.


    5. My love for this collection started off strong, but was nearly obliterated 2 3 of the way though with a couple of stories that I just couldn t get through Still, the stories that worked, worked wonderfully, and my faith in the collection was restored by the last couple of stories I m very glad I stuck it out


    6. This book is fantastic, fresh, and original Not only is it totally entertaining, but there are lots of experiments with voice and narrative Entertainment and experimentation do not often walk hand in hand I m inspired And I d highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fabulous fabulist fiction.Wheeee


    7. I love it when writers play with conventional genres and narratives, and mix them up, make them unsual and fun and unexpected That Angela Carter was memorialized in this volume made it even awesome This is my favorite Tin House so far.


    8. This 2007 special issue of Tin House features women writers who are fantastic both in style and content The collection can serve as a valuable introduction to the genre that resists characterization or a sweet indulgence in other worlds.


    9. i haven t quite finished this but i dunno, i m not very impressed aside from aimee s story and a couple of other pieces, this felt just too much like weird for weird combined with a serious lack of entertaining.


    10. I didn t have a chance to read all of the pieces in this journal, but the ones I did read were excellent brave, unusual and thought provoking.


    11. Most of the poetry was mediocre Some of the stories were stunning, gripping, refreshing page turners, and at least one I could not make it through.








    12. There were several writers featured who I consistently enjoy But I didn t like the stories that were selected for this collection There are other stories by these women that are better.


    13. this installment from tin house featured nearly ALL of my favorite modern female writers and the art of the lovely Julie Heffernan a kind of bible for me that i am always reading.


    14. Had high hopes, was turned off by the whimsical silliness of most of the stories Stopped before I got to Kelly Link, so I ll have to open this again someday.
