Book review: Under Cover of Darkness

A quick note about Under Cover of Darkness edited by Julie E. Czerneda and Jana Paniccia.

This is another book that had been sitting on my shelf long enough that I don't recall how it got there, and it wasn't quite the book that I thought it was as I frequently looked at the spine as it sat there.  It turns out that it's an anthology on the theme of grand conspiracies running the world from the shadows; no werewolves or vampires.  A couple of stories that ticked me off, for time travel themes or for pushing an objectionable political.  A Tanya Huff story (glee!) but one that I had already read in another collection (oh well), still enjoyable on re-reading.  A couple of stories that touched me, but mostly, kinda meh.

6 out of 10.
