Tina May Hall's The Physics of Imaginary Objects is one of the best short story collections I've read this year, and I can't recommend it enough. As the editor of The Collagist, I've been lucky enough to publish two of the stories in this collection--"Visitations" in Issue Fourteen and "By the Gleam of Her Teeth, She Will Light the Path Before Her" in Issue Six--and as an author I had the great honor of coming in second to her in Caketrain's 2008 Chapbook Contest, which she won with her novella "All the Day's Sad Stories." That sold-out novella is also part of this collection, and if you missed it when it was available from Caketrain you shouldn't wait any longer, as it's included in The Physics of Imaginary Objects, which is being published as the winner of the Drue Heinz Literature Prize. Hall is a truly extraordinary writer, and her collection an extraordinary book. Pick it up today!
