The Speed Chronicles - Joseph Mattson, William T. Vollmann, Sherman Alexie, James Franco, Megan Abbott, Beth Lisick, Scott Phillips, Natalie Diaz, Jerry Stahl, Kenji Jasper, Jess Walter, Rose Bunch, Tao Lin, James Greer Only read the Megan Abbott story, but that's all I wanted it for. A doctor is arrested for prescribing illegal and undisclosed drugs to his patients, after it all goes tragically wrong; his (remaining) patients are on his side. Not really about speed per se, I think, but that's not the point. The doctor is kindly and unreliable; the slippage between normal unreliable perception and drug-induced unreliability is well-done. Reminds me a lot of Elizabeth Hand. Not bad, but not one of my favorites.
