Bubble Off Plumb is an anthology collection of short stories edited by KG Finfrock, Sarah Kalin and Dan M. Kalin, and contributed to by a whole collection of other authors – Marie Brennan, David Tallerman and E.E. King, to name but a few. The tales center around a speculative and science fiction theme, and as the title suggests, they toy with seemingly ordinary ideas to make them just a little off kilter. Designed as a coffee table reader which showcases each author’s work, the 26 tales range wildly in theme, from historical strangeness to alien invasion, time travel and dimensional movement in outer space. All that they share is a sense of oddity and unreality.

As is always the way with a mixed collection of stories, there were some that I absolutely loved and others which didn’t connect for me. The writing quality, however, was excellent throughout, and each author certainly has a distinctive voice which makes each reading experience brand new. Marie Brennan started strong with a horror-esque, creepy tale in Serpent, Wolf and Half-Dead Thing, which I enjoyed immensely for its vivid description and nasty twists. Some others which I really enjoyed were the Steampunk-styled The Octopus of Bangkok by Robert Millet, and the authentic narrative voice in Why The Louisiana Swamp Cat He Go To Texas, by Sarah M. Lewis, totally threw me into deep southern Americana as the strange tale unfolded. Overall, editors KG Finfrock, Sarah Kalin and Dan M. Kalin have produced an eclectic and enjoyable mix in Bubble Off Plumb.”
