Cone Zero: Nemonymous Eight (2008)

The latest instalment of Des Lewis's 'megazanthus' (magazine/anthology) Nemonymous, which prints its stories without author credits (instead, they'll be given in the next volume) -- though the writers are listed on the back cover. The anonymity didn't actually make much difference to me, because only one writer's work was familiar to me -- John Grant (

realthog), and I think I've guessed which story is his -- and it doesn't really matter anyway, because Cone Zero is an excellent selection of stories. There are sentient domestic appliances on the run from humans; strange artworks, one depicting an orphan's mother and a large metal cone, the other incorporating a cone whose dimensions are zero (most of the stories reference the book's title in some way); mysterious houses, even entire worlds that aren't what they seem to be. With only a few missteps, I'm as sure as I can be that this will be one of the best anthologies of the year.
