From Rich Horton's review in the November issue of Locus:

"I'll close with a chapbook: the third Rabid Transit volume, this one subtitled Petting Zoo. As ever, the focus is on slipstream, and to very good effect. M. Rickert's "Art Is Not a Violent Subject" is a disquieting short piece about a man carving a woman from a stolen piece of wood. John Aegard's "The Golden Age of Fire Escapes" is a delightfully wacky but straight-faced story about a Fire Marshall who becomes obsessed with redesigning his city with fire escapes. And I really liked David Moles's "Five Irrational Histories", which considers five obscure, rather political, alternate-history branch points. Moles combines some serious speculation with whimsy -- it's fun and thoughtful work."

A big congratulations to John Aegard and David Moles, whose stories in Rabid Transit: Petting Zoo were mentioned in Locus' Recommended Reading List for 2004.

From Rich Horton's end of year summary of Petting Zoo:

This was perhaps the strongest outing yet. I particularly
liked David Moles's "Five Irrational Histories", which considers five
obscure alternate history branch points. Moles combines some serious
political speculation with whimsy -- it's fun and thoughtful work, and
it grows on me in memory. John Aegard's "The Golden Age of Fire
Escapes" is wacky fun stuff, about an obsessive fire marshal, and M.
Rickert's "Art is Not a Violent Subject" is a disquieting short piece
about a man carving a woman from wood. Really, this is a first rate
collection -- not to be missed.
