    1. There are so many awesome authors in here! Am I saying that just because I'm in this book? No. But I am in here, too.

    2. 30 Under 30… is a conglomeration of what makes those under 30 unique to their particular moment in time. These stories use as their inspiration everything from Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong from the NES system released in 1985 to compu-speak, “languages that no one else knows or pretends to know.” When the under 30 generation opened itself to technology, there had to be error, and one story synthesizes faith with machine: “I am not the god you wanted but you already clicked send witho [...]

    3. The title alone tells me that I may be too old for this by about a decade, but I jumped into it eagerly. And discovered I'm a lot dumber and decidedly less hip than I had hoped.Edited by Blake Butler and Lily Hoang The key is "innovative" and it really delivers on that ende short stories that make up this collection bend all the rules, if not shattering them entirely. Metaphysical thought mixes with concrete metaphors, and the result feels inspired and youthful, even if it all doesn't make sense [...]

    4. review to come hopefully, when I find my notes. okay notes I wrote in the book next to the contributor names to remember who I liked. Danielle adair: alright not great, a fine storyangi becker stevens: interesting would be good as a novelist I think matt bell: Fucking fantastic. WANT. geeked out story about jumpman!!!kristina born: very good. buy about how we interface with the world, like Tao lin. ryan call: interesting everyone but me vibe, a fun story. joshua cohen: very cool, pretty writing, [...]

    5. I wanted to like this book, I really did. wanted to discover young talent, wanted to appreciate the avant garden, wanted to applaud innovationbut I just couldn't. Guess I'm too old for this. OUt of the 30 stories in this book, I REALLY liked about 4 of them and thought another 3 were okay, and at least admired the experimentation with maybe another 2 or 3. the rest were just WEIRD.

    6. This was a pretty interesting collection of short stories. Some were only a few pages long, others (and really, my least favorites) went on for what seemed forever. A lot of fun, playful pieces that stretched the story form out and remolded it nicely. While I liked many of the pieces, I wasn't "blown away" by any one in particular, which was a little disappointing.

    7. top 10 words from first paragraphs:1. "crock-pot" by ryan downey2. "glopping" by rebecca jean kraft3. "disbiotic" by kathleen rooney and elisa gabbert4. "tarpaulin" by mike young5. "pretzel" by sean kilpatrick6. "genetically" by rachel b. glaser7. "clouds" by shane jones8. "fuzzy" by christina kloess9. "esconced" by andrew farkas10. "affix" by joshua cohen

    8. Lots and lots and lots of bad writing, proving mostly that you probably shouldn't publish under 30. Two notable exceptions: Rachel Glaser's "Infections" and the "City Walk" prose-poems by Kathleen Rooney and Elisa Gabbert.

    9. I extremely dislike narrative that follows the description + random vocabulary pattern to make utter nonsense, and this book had too much of that.

    10. First story was crude and boring so I stopped reading it. If a collection of stories begins with that kind of tale, I'd rather not waste my time.

    11. reading a lot of these stories felt like riding the Tower of Doom, and some of them even lasted longer

    12. There are a couple of gems in here, but for the most part, "Innovative" seems to be a synonym for "nonsensical."
