Book #18, Eclipse One, edited by Jonathan Strahan

I'd read a bunch of the stories in this anthology when I started working my way through the LRSF list, and have now polished off the eight outstanding ones.

This is definitely an anthology worth having. There were just a couple of stories I cared very little for. From the ones I haven't yet commented on, Lucius Shepard's "Larissa Miusov" was outstanding, a knock-out; Paul Brandon and Jack Dann's "The Transformation of Targ" highly entertaining; and Bruce Sterling's "The Lustration" intriguing, though it felt a little rough in places. I'll have more on that one when I get to that spot on the LRSF list.
