Big surprises here or I guess not..

The only book I think it's way overrated is Singularity Ring which was very mediocre considering its potential - great idea, C- execution

The rest though cannot argue with though Dozois is too predictable...

I didn´t read Singularity Ring yet. In fact, I didn´t know Paul Melko until I started writing twitterfiction - he is also a contributor for Thaumatrope. Now that classes finally are over, I´ll get over my exhaustion and start reading fast again. Will get to him sometime in the near future.
