At first i was unsure if i would like it, because Poppy Z. Brite had only edited it and i was really looking forward to reading some more of her stuff after reading Lost Souls, Wormwood and Drawing Blood, but as i started to read it i realized that since she did edit it, that the work was very similar to hers. there were a few stories in the however that were VERY bad and i would recomend skipping them, some being "kinyo no fun"-icky. and hmmm.....the really long one something "sundering wineskins..." or something. horrible. but as a HUGE poppy fan, i was impressed overall and really look forward to the next one.
