In case some of you haven't gotten your grubby paws on a copy of the August _Locus_ yet, this is from Rich Horton's Reviews column...

One group of young writers who have begun to attract attention is the Ratbastards: DeNiro, Christopher Barzak (also in _Trampoline_), barth Anderson and Kristin Livdahl. Last year they put out a chapbook called _Rabid Transit_, one story by each of them, all slipstream. This year they serve as editors for _Rabid Transit: A Mischief of Rats_, five stories that again straddle the SF/fantasy/mainstream border. I liked Douglas Lain's "The Headline Trick" best for the utterly weird money-making scheme presented, and for the political/historical resonances. David J. Hoffman-Dachelet's "Braiding" is a short, effective, and sweetly erotic gender-bending fantasy.

Clearly Rich Horton is a genius.
