Lots of really great short story collections are being released this year, but one you should take time to get a copy of and read is Streetcar Dreams, by Richard Bowes. This collection has some of the best contemporary fantasy and horror stories I've read in years inside its pages. Rick Bowes writes stories that are at once totally gritty realism and out and out fantastical in nature. It's a harder blend of two different styles of writing to merge than it seems sometimes, but I don't think anyone does it quite so well as Rick does. So check out this collection. It'll be well worth your time and money.
