review 1: I am a huge fan of this series of anthologies, and some years are incredible, some hit-or-miss, and others are just meh. This would be one of those meh years. However, that being said, I have never not read a single volume from this series and not been touched, had thoughts provoked, cracked up about something, or just been deeply wowed by one or two pieces that stay with me forever.

Good. Prefer a bit more feature writing. Overdid the "Occupy" crap.
These collections are always a solid read.
