Slipstreamy and vervy...

INTRACITIES Review from Asimov's

This from the October/November Asimov's, in a review by Paul DiFilippo:

"A lively, handsome little theme anthology is to be found in the form of Intracities. Editor Michael Jasper here arrays a baker's dozen of tales focusing on the odd and uncanny niches to be found in such diverse cities as Phoenix, Montreal, Oakland, and London. With slipstreamy verve, the fourteen writers (there's one collaboration) present narratives about a spectral car mechanic (Mark Siegel's "Heat"); a reluctant Dalai Lama (Jason Erik Lundberg's "Enlightenment"); and a mythic railroadman (Jay Lake's "Iron Heaven"), among many other themes. And a striking wraparound collage by Frank Wu complements the whole package nicely."

What a great capsule review! I'm so glad he mentioned my buddy Mark's story -- Mark passed away last fall after a sudden heart attack. I only wish Mark could've seen this.

And hey, nice work, writers! And kudos to Frank for making such a kick-ass cover (and to John Teehan for putting it all together when my design skills fell short)!

And hey, there are still some copies of Intracities for sale... Get 'em while you can.
