    I normally give these sort of collections three stars and say ‘a mixed bag’, but... Resnick: I can’t help feeling that if this exact text had been submitted by an unknown, rather than one of the big beasts of the genre, it wouldn’t make it out of the slush pile, at least not without a hell of a trim. A decent flash trying to get out. Wolden: I liked this, but the ending, I feel, falls into the category of emotionally unfulfilling cop-outs that I find editors shouting at me over. Swanwick: reminded I normally give these sort of collections three stars and say ‘a mixed bag’, but...

Swanwick: reminded me of The Martian, which I was ambivalent over, not really getting a sense of connection. Stephens: Hmm... okay, nice world building, but not really satisfying as a mystery: the answer should be foreshadowed, but the reader distracted so they don’t notice (or did it do its job brilliantly and I didn’t notice?). Hazlett: I quite liked this. Kreme: I felt as trapped in this story as the main character. Cherry: tonally disquieting. Stories with talking bears called Barry are normally children’s stories or comedic, without bloodletting or leaden didacticism (I think that was the point the third star vanished). And what happened to Gray’s body? Nobody gave a toss after his narrative purpose was exhausted. And proofreading please: there’s a huge difference between “Why do you think they’d regret breaking up a flawed hierarchy?” and “Why, do you think they’d regret breaking up a flawed hierarchy?” Kole: a sweet flash
