"Each story in the collection is cogent—even more so than certain efforts collected in the 2010 New Yorker assembly . . . The stories cannot be examined as variations of a theme, which makes it versatile literature . . . The ten stories in The Masters Review foretell an inspiring future of American letters if these writers maintain their course. They signal more than talent; they suggest a willingness to experiment significantly, to examine a theme thoughtfully and, like the metaphor referenced above, to convey the flame and anchor the story down in the event of wind . . . On the website for this year’s collection, the editors specify innovation and 'authenticity' as criteria for inclusion. The diversity of voices and styles seems to support these aims." —New Pages
