I'll be honest, I've often wandered over to Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show website, but I've yet to do more than see if there are any free stories up or peruse a few of the articles in each issue. It's not the price that has kept me from buying, it's pretty darn cheap for the amount of stories in each issue, but for whatever reason I've held off. If the eighteen stories in the newly released Orson Scott Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show (IGMS) anthology are a good representation of the quality there, however, then I've made a mistake and have lot of reading to do. IGMS showcases the best from, I believe, the first four issues and makes for some great reading for those who can't get enough of the short form.

From official release/information:

Book Description: Bestselling writer Orson Scott Card founded the online magazine Intergalactic Medicine Show in 2006. It has been a big success, drawing submissions from well-known sf and fantasy writers, as well as fostering some amazing new talents. This collection contains some of the best of those stories from the past year.

There is fiction from David Farber, Tim Pratt, and David Lubar among others, also four new Ender's Game universe stories by Card himself. This collection is sure to appeal to Card's fans, and be a great ambassador to them for these other talented writers.
