Reviews of the previous editions:
“What is perhaps most noteworthy about The Sleepers Almanac No. 7 is the great balance Dattner and Swinn have brought to the col- lection as a whole. There’s a satisfying variety in the subject mat- ter and tone of the stories, and there’s a nice variation in structure that keeps the reading experience here always fresh and never dull, and that makes for a very impressive anthology of writing.” – Canberra Times
“This year’s is another hefty contribution to the good health of short fiction in Australia, with the weight towards material by new and emerging authors.” – Kerryn Goldsworthy, Sydney Morning Herald
