An exquisite collection of short stories from this amazing writer. He makes the unbelievable real so effortlessly that it is easy to be swept along in his tales and not even notice how incredibly well written they are. To pick out anyone as the best would be disrespectful to the others, and I urge you to read it cover to cover including the introduction. He does things with such a simple, often dry, style that might make other writers might turn green and spit poison with envy. Read it. Read it.
