Overall, this is an excellent collection, one I highly recommend. While there were a couple of stories I didn't enjoy at all, specifically "An Angel for the Angels" and "End of the Rainbow," the handful of exceptional stories kept me from dropping my review down to four stars. I think my favorites were "Acupuncture," "Competition," and "Dead Man's Burrito," although several more neared the top of my list. Before reading this collection, I'd only read Zelazny's noir and suspense/thriller. While I thought those were excellent, his horror is even better. The squeamish might not appreciate every story in here, but the average horror fan is in for a real treat. 5 stars.
