I love to read short stories. There was a time when my morning routine consisted in waking up, making a cup of tea and sitting at the small table I had in the kitchen with my pc open on the Daily Science Fiction to read the short story of the day. It's a memory buried in the past now (kids, you know the deal), but I still try to read short stories whenever I can. So when Anomalies & Curiosities came out, I just knew I had to read it. First, I knew some of the authors from a previous Quill & Crow anthology (poetry this time); second, horror short stories with anatomy and medicine as a theme? I was sold. And was I beyond ecstatic when the publishing house reached out to ask me to review it? Yes, yes and yes.
