    1. An entertaining and varied selection - as with most short story collections by widely different writers, some were more to my taste than others. My favourites were ones that drilled down to the profound and unspeakable loneliness experienced in intimate relationships (Puppet Show by Cate Kennedy, Alphabet by Ryan O'Neill, Manyuk by Mark Smith) and the one I'm still thinking about is The Level Playing Field by Julie Koh, a surreal and very clever fable about privilege, diversity, economic equalit [...]


    2. I love the short form. The investment needed is far less than that needed for a novel, but the pay-off is just as satisfying, if not more so. This collection does not disappoint.
