  1.

  2. This is okay Some of the stories are pretty dated, and the prose can be patchy at times A few of the stories are pretty lame, and I say this as a Pat Cadigan fanboy I read her stuff at an early age and loved it.My favorite stories from this collection are Angel and The Power and the Passion although I d read the latter story a long time ago, I still enjoyed it even though it s a lot raw than I remembered.I still like Pat Cadigan and maybe I ll dig into her novels to see what all the shooting wa [...]
