One Death Nine Stories, ed by Marc Aronson and Charles R Smith Jr
I have my favorites of course -- A. S. King's piece is by far the most indelible of the set -- while some of them didn't speak as well to me.

The final result is surprisingly effective and demonstrates a lot of cooperation among the writers and editors and melding their stories together.
