Picked this up at the Book Thing of Baltimore, MD. Turns out, I already have a copy of this book and don't need two. So out this copy goes into the world to find a reader who doesn't already have it!

7 out of 10

I'm claiming this from the bookbox.

Later: Lots of enjoyable stories here, some quite sad, others heartwarming. (The editor's introduction may explain his personal bias in this selection!) Among my favorites:

J. A. Deveaux' "Passing", in which a young man playing a Frisbee game with friends in a graveyard meets a solemn stranger who disapproves; they strike up a friendship, but things take a poignant turn.

Gavin Austen's "Tokens to Tomorrow," with a grieving man meeting an unexpected matchmaker.

Scott D. Pomfret's "Magi," which opens with a Unitarian-Universalist take on a non-sectarian creche (!) and segues into a relationship-of-sorts.

Rhysenn S.' "The Law of Love" actually presents two men who meet in the course of prosecuting a legal claim, not the most romantic setting, yet the story works very well.

For a change of pace, there's Schuyler Bishop's "Rearview Mirror," a modern spin on the tale of Narcissus.

On the humorous side, Lawrence Schimel's "Märchen to a Different Beat" takes the Hansel and Gretel story into new and fabulous territory.

"A Man's Man" by Steve Atwood is set in a senior citizens' home, and presents a charming friendship between an unlikely pair.
