I'm excited that a story from a SFBC original anthology is up there (Rob Sawyer's "Identity Theft," from Down These Dark Spaceways). Though I think "Magic for Beginners" is going to be damn hard to beat; I just read it for the second time the other day and I think it might well be one of those instant classics like "Fondly Farenheit" or "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream." But I still haven't read "Identity Theft" yet, so that could be even better.
