Three Messages and a Warning: Contemporary Mexican Short Stories of the Fantastic

Three Messages and a Warning: Contemporary Mexican Short Stories of the Fantastic - Eduardo Jimenez Mayo, Chris n. Brown, Bruce Sterling Like most books of short stories, the quality was variable, perhaps more highly variable than usual for me. I tended to like the stories more as I went on, though I'm not sure whether that's because the stories got stronger, or because I got more used to the nuances of the way they were being told. There was overall a kind of gentleness to the style, and the stories were often (though not universally) neither violent nor intense; they also tended to have a very specific voice and point of view. Overall I'm not sure it was a strong collection, but for me it was an interesting one.
