These stories aren't easy stories, because they'll make you think about things and they linger in your mind long after you read them. All the stories in this anthology are more or less weird and some of them are a bit disturbing, but that's part of their attraction. Readers who appreciate weird stories will find lots to enjoy in this anthology.
I have to confess that I read all the stories twice, because I loved the way they were written. After reading these stories twice I can say that Blind Swimmer is without a doubt one of the best anthologies of 2010.
Blind Swimmer is a fine anthology of different kind of speculative fiction. If you like well written short stories and want to read something different, you should read this anthology, because you won't regret reading it. These stories will lead you to a world of wonder and amazement. Reading this anthology will reward you with glorious, wondrous and unique visions of different things, because all the writers are capable of transforming ordinary elements into new and exciting forms.

Creativity in isolation is the theme of this anthology, which features work from the writers who have contributed to Eibonvale Press over its first five or six years of existence. It's a good showcase for the press, demonstrating something the style and standard you can expect from its authors.
Blind Swimmer is an intriguing and brave collection, filled with challenging stories which often sit on the edge of genre definitions, defying our expectations.

Themed anthologies are becoming increasingly popular, so much so that editors' imaginations are constantly challenged by the need to find new, previously unheard of, subjects. I think that the first prize for originality should be awarded to the recently established but quite lively Eibonvale Press, the latest product of which is Blind Swimmer, an anthology devoted to the unusual and stimulating theme of creativity in isolation.
This is definitely an anthology worth reading from a promising publisher which deserves to be kept under close scrutiny in the future.
