The SF Site's Seamus Sweeney gives Love in Vain a pretty impressive review.

Ticonderoga Publications have produced a beautiful limited edition paperback of Lewis Shiner's 1997 collection. These are great stories, ranging over genres and locations with admirable disdain for the artificial boundaries that disfigure literature. To use one of the great clichés, there is something for everyone. More accurately, there are multiple stories to suit multiple tastes.
