I liked very much almost all of Hartwell's selection. The one that really got under my skin was A.M. Dellamonica's "A Slow Day At The Gallery"; two others that had stuck in my mind from first reading were Charles Stross's "Halo" and Greg Egan's "Singleton". There were unfortunately a couple of mawkish stories about cute old people, which I note is a disturbing and not particularly funny or interesting trend in American sf these days. All the others are very good. Worth returning to.
LibraryThing Unsuggestion: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Also numerous other books I have read, some of which I even enjoyed.
