I got this on the strength of "And Then There Were N-One" and "Wind Will Rove", and while none of the other stories hit me as hard, that's not saying much - those two stories were probably my favorite thing I read all last year. I ended up recommending them a lot - "And Then There Were N-One" for the conceit and the road not taken, and "Wind Will Rove" during conversations about the friction between preservation and innovation after a cultural cataclysm.

That being said, the rest of the collection is good: "The Narwhal" and "The Low Hum of Her" were two of my other favorites.

"The Lonely Seafarer" felt like it was going somewhere, but I felt a little dissatisfied at the ending. And I could have used more of "The Sewell Home" - it's incredibly short. It sounds like Pinsker's novel is going to be set in the same world - or maybe a similar one - as "Our Lady of the Open Road". Which, well, seemed like it was all setting, so it'd be interesting to see what happens with a plot.
