(No story-analysis will be committed in this entry)
"How to Talk to Girls at Parties" - Neil Gaiman: But really, where does he get his ideas?
"In the House of the Seven Librarians" - Ellen Klages: Possibly the best coming-of-age story ever.
"Under Hell, Over Heaven" - Margo Lanagan: If I believed in the Christian kind of afterlife, I would buy into this description of it.
"Incarnation Day" - Walter Jon Williams: Wait. Maybe this could be the best coming-of-age story ever.
"The Night Whiskey" - Jeffrey Ford: I think people's heads might explode if he and Neil Gaiman combined their ideas.
"The Bible Repairman" - Tim Powers: Now I will always wonder what "bad prayers" might sound like.*
"Pol Pot's Beautiful Daughter (Fantasy)" - Geoff Ryman: Oh. Or this could be the best coming-of-age story...
"Journey Into the Kingdom" - M. Rickert: Story-within-story at its very finest.
"The Wizards of Perfil" - Kelly Link: Wicked little girl Learns Lessons and grows into better person.
"Sob in the Silence" - Gene Wolfe: Creepy creepy creepy!!!
* For reasons I can't explain, I feel that combining the ideas of Powers and Gaiman would not work well. Bonus points will be awarded for theories on that in the comments.
