As a city, Los Angeles is, itself, a bit stranger than fiction, all at once it is both a major American metropolis sprawling hundreds of square miles across Southern California and a collection of smaller, multicultural neighborhoods that can change from block to block. It's a place where there is both great wealth and abject poverty, where natural disasters are only a moment away and where you can go skiing and hit the beach all in the same day, if you're especially intrepid.
--AirTalk with Larry Mantle (KPCC)
Los Angeles is a particularly appropriate and broadly appealing place to begin the series, given its outsized role in the American imagination...This appealing and varied collection offers 14 speculative stories set in neighborhoods around Los Angeles, but with interests that go beyond the local.
--Shelf Awareness for Readers
Many [stories] have a distinctly gritty and postapocalyptic flavor that takes advantage of a uniquely L.A. vibe.
The contributing authors skillfully capture the presences of different Los Angeles neighborhoods that become characters all on their own, teetering on the precipice of many possibilities...An excellent collection of what-ifs that will pique readers' imaginations.
The stories here move among all of Los Angeles' gritty and bright corners.
