Huge Mean Time review at Strange Horizons

Reading a short story collection is sort of like having a series of chats with a relative stranger, maybe your mailperson or the guy you buy your coffee from each morning. While the individual conversations are different in their minor details, together they paint a singular picture, rich with undercurrents and nuance, of deeper preoccupations, joys, fears, and hauntings—the things that make a person tick, and also the things that keep him up at night. The best collections leave you with the feeling that you’ve explored a large, unnamable territory from a variety of different vantage points. And like the best of collections, each subsequent piece of the strange and wonderful In the Mean Time by Paul Tremblay produces an extra level of association, a subconscious drawing of lines connecting the material and creating something even greater than the sum of its parts.”–Richard Larson, Strange Horizons
