    4-4.5 I'd read quite a few anthologies lately and hundreds of fantasy and horror stories (for work and pleasure) yet this collection felt surprisingly fresh and I found myself looking forward to coming home to read it each night. Many of the stories have a distinctly Australian flavour and all in all there were very few that I couldn't quite connect with. There are some absolutely excellent stories here and despite their varying tones the collection works admirably well as a whole.

There are some absolutely excellent stories here and despite their varying tones the collection works admirably well as a whole. There were stories that made me laugh, stories that left me elated, stories that scared me and one that actually made me tear up. I'll most likely write a more detailed review mentioning some of my favourite stories at a later date. Highly recommended. Personally, I can't wait for the 2011 anthology.

    What it says on the box - it's the best of the year, not a weak story to be seen. An awesome and definitive collection, I really enjoyed it. What it says on the box - it's the best of the year, not a weak story to be seen. An awesome and definitive collection, I really enjoyed it.
