They will not be persuaded of this by the contemporary prose in Playboy , admirable as it is when written by Herbert Gold, nor will they be by that in The Atlantic or Saturday Evening Post , even though this dullard and that desperado both lack the four-color gatefold distraction of Playboy.
And it is easier to demonstrate the utility of rules when it can be demonstrated that often their neglect results in chaos, is it not? Amanda Deo of Thunderclap!

Oct 12, Larry Bassett rated it really liked it Shelves: short-stories. This was a most enjoyable collection of short stories. Having Jim Shepard as the editor certainly contributed to the quality but the authors were all very good. There was not one story that I did not like. This is a great coffee table book for a smallish coffee table!
This particular Ploughshares has no poetry, only short stories, nine in this small softcover book. While you won't find this used unless you have a friend with back issues, there is a way to catch up with a new or electronic copy.
I This was a most enjoyable collection of short stories. May 31, Thing Two rated it really liked it Shelves: poetry. As with any collection of stories, there were some I just loved, and some I found only okay. I would say the stories started off slowly for me, and if I hadn't already read a reviewer rave about Ethan Rutherford's short "John, for Christmas", I might have given up on the whole collection; I haven't been a big fan of Jim Shepard's writing, either. But, boy oh boy am I glad I kept reading.

Jim Shepard never disappoints. There are some wonderful stories in this volume. Leong is unhesitatingly brutal on the page. John, for Christmas was surprisingly good. Jim's interview is also fun. Oct 08, Jimmie rated it really liked it Shelves: litmags-journals-and-zines. Ethan Rutherford's story "John, for Christmas," about a middle-aged couple living on a farm and waiting through a storm for the arrival of their bipolar son for the holidays, is alone worth the cover price. Add in some excellent stories by Ian Stansel and Robert Cohen?
Oct 22, Ted rated it it was amazing. The Charles Baxter short story is worth the price alone. I saw Jim Shepard, the editor, speak last week. Nice guy, and he picked some good stories to boot!
