Each of these tales pokes a probing finger into a favourite leisure-time activity,mining them for fun and horror, sometimes simultaneously. So, if youve ever stared in bemusement at a piece of conceptual art, or been the butt of a stand-up comics joke, or crowd-surfed during a rock concert, or maybe spent a little too much time watching sport on television, these stories will appeal to you.Nancy Fulda (Nebula Award nominee and proprietor of AnthologyBuilder.com) wrote of Slices of Life: My favorite from this batch is Stangers Slices of Life, the poignant tale of an artist who turned his own death into a form artistic expression, and the woman whose heart got dragged along in his wake.Meredith Wiggins (in The Future Fires review of the Music for Another World anthology) wrote of Star in a Glass: there was one (story) in particular which seemed to create a whole world through suggestion, and left me with the fervent hope that it will be expanded into a full length novel at some point. ‘Star in a Glass’ by Vaughan Stanger is the story of the re-forming of a ‘prog-metal-ballet’ band in the near future ... the details Stanger intersperses within the tantrums and trials of the band create a richly textured (if somewhat gritty) world- one which I would personally love to visit again.This collection also features Hand in Glove, the story of a psychotic glove puppet and its virtual successor, and Extra Time, a story that might just make you nervous about watching televised sport.Let the show begin!
