James Doig's comments about the anthology: "Grants Pass is a post-apocalypse anthology with an additional linking theme involving Grants Pass, an Oregan town that has become a symbol of hope to survivors. News clippings and reports of plagues and other catastrophes effectively set the scene and the book is neatly top and tailed with journal entries by Kayley Allard, whose blog entry "When the end of the world comes, meet me in Grants Pass, Oregon" informs all of the stories. The concept is a strong one-it allows authors full rein to explore ideas, settings and plots, but the connecting links are such that the overall effect is greater than sum of its parts. And some of the parts are very strong indeed; stand out stories for me were "Animal Husbandry" by Seanan McGuire, "Men of Faith" by Ivan Ewart, and "By the Sea" by Shannon Page. What could have been improved? There is quite a lot of collateral-dedications, forewords, story notes, biographies-much of which could have appeared at the back of the book or excised altogether."
