Cutting Edge edited by Joyce Carol Oates

This an anthology of stories by many writers.  These aren't nice stories but they will stick with you.  They'll also keep you reading...

Akashic sent me an Arc of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published November 5th.

This includes brand-new stories by: Joyce Carol Oates, Margaret Atwood (poems), Valerie Martin, Aimee Bender, Edwidge Danticat, Sheila Kohler, S.A. Solomon, S.J. Rozan, Lucy Taylor, Cassandra Khaw, Bernice L. McFadden, Jennifer Morales, Elizabeth McCracken, Livia Llewellyn, Lisa Lim, and Steph Cha.

These stories discuss everything.  Some are about sex, some are more mystical, and some are murderous.  It says these are new stories of mystery and crime  by women writers.  That's true.  Most are written in different styles than I'm used to but they were all interesting reads.

If you don't mind scaring yourself a bit, you'll enjoy these.
