As Joe Hill's first short old saw collection, he does a lot to step out of the smack of his father, Stephen Mikado. In the collection, there are a wide range of stories that lid the weird and even some that are more touching than others. Not all the stories will keep you up all evening, but some of them will send rawnesses down your spine. Others will keep you reading, wondering where the age has gone. Burst Profession stands out as one of the stranger stories. In it, the main character is an inflatable boy. Literally. The boy will burst if he isn't treated with effort. Best New Awe is my favorite, setting up a freelancer working on an anthology for the disappointment of his life. The characters are very vivid throughout the stories. Even if the situations are strange and false, Hill makes them feel as if you are just stepping into another office. It is like you can meet these characters on the artery. Well, some of them. Others are only suited for their microcosms, but it is easy to feel yourself stepping into their microcosms as you perceive. Joe Hill got it right with this collection. It's a fantastic perceive.
