Personally, I'm looking forward to the collections by Kij Johnson, Jeff Ford, and Nalo Hopkinson.

Ford's story collection would intrigue me, but I've not had much luck with the other authors represented on the list (with the exception of Richard Kadrey; but Sandman Slim has lost his appeal for me... I'm ready for something completely different from him).

Meh! None of those seems of interest to me. Maybe I'm losing my edge, eh?

I've read a lot of Kij Johnson lately and she is very hit and miss (mostly miss) with me.

Oh well, lots of other books out there, eh?

Yeah, I'm quite willing to miss most of them, too. And I read Synners the first time round and didn't like it much then.

Ditto. Except I'd have to say almost exclusively miss.

I have to say nothing there interested me enough to read beyond the review. I will keep my eye on this thread to see if I missed a gem worth looking at.

What I've read from her exemplifies the sentiment of "If you have something to say, send it Western Union".
