Ben Peek's 'The Souls of Dead Soldiers are for Blackbirds, Not Little Boys' is a spooky and intriguing story of a strange war-torn underground realm, and the way a poor family is affected by the invasion of soul-ridden blackbirds.
There's plenty more - this is a pretty well stuffed collection. There are interesting pieces from the likes of Jay Lake, Jeff VanderMeer, and Adam Browne, just to name a few more. The Agog! anthologies have been pretty interesting for some time, but this latest is a step up - one of the better original anthologies of 2006.
