John Grant's Ghost Story is the standout here — very good indeed. Karl Bunker's Ashes is a smart take on the Singularity, and I'd love to have the illustration for it (by Jim Burns) as a poster. Trace Welser's A Doll Is Not A Dumpling has some nice ideas, although I wish it hadn't followed the general trend of ending with the death of its protagonist (at least Gareth L. Powell's This Is How You Die is upfront about it).
