Golden Gryphon's high-quality productions result in picks which can be recommended across the board, and their latest publications are no exception. George Alec Effinger's LIVE! FROM PLANET EARTH (1930846320, $25.95) provides over twenty short pieces by fellow writers and editors who knew Effinger quite well. Each provides a commentary about their selection which includes insights into how it was written: with the commentary based on personal knowledge of Effinger, each note offers more depth and insight than your usual introduction. As for the short stories — they're written across the decades and provide numerous focuses.

. . .

All are powerful, excellent reads.
