    I picked this book up a while back, because it had a copy of my story, "The Road to Levinshir" in it. I've only now managed to start reading it. Normally I don't read many short stories, but I've really enjoyed the vast majority of these. All of them very different. All of them very good.

    I won't star this, as I did not read all the stories, but I would say that this collection was alright. Mostly good stories, but not a whole lot in the way of super amazing. Take a stab at it if you want to know what an anthology feels like. My only disappointment were the occasional typos in this Kindle edition that I hope were not in the print version. I mean, it's hard enough science fiction and fantasy are marginalized. Don't make it harder with typos, I say.

    Like all collections, this one had some great stories, some mediocre and some forgettable. I have to say that this one had a higher percentage of stories that entertained me than most other collections, so I recommend it to those who enjoy sci-fi and fantasy. It was also helpful in suggesting an author whose work I'd like to read more of. Like all collections, this one had some great stories, some mediocre and some forgettable.

    Two short stories in and I'm captivated. (What took me so long to find short stories?). Love it.i highly recommend for anyone with a curious mind. You don't have to be a scfi/fantasy fan. But it will probably make you one. Two short stories in and I'm captivated. (What took me so long to find short stories?). Love it.i highly recommend for anyone with a curious mind.

    Meh. Some good bits. It was really long. This is my worst review ever. Also, it was the 2010 edition.

    Terrible. Very little science fiction, very little fantasy. Long rambling stories, I found myself flipping ahead to the next one because what I was reading just wasn’t going anywhere. Many stories using invented names and leaving the reader to imagine what they mean. Novella length stories not worth the time to read, and many that didn’t really have clear endings, they merely stopped. Seems to be a trend in “science fiction” anthologies, further and further from science fiction, just plain storie Terrible. Very little science fiction, very little fantasy.

Novella length stories not worth the time to read, and many that didn’t really have clear endings, they merely stopped. Seems to be a trend in “science fiction” anthologies, further and further from science fiction, just plain stories, and not interesting ones either. One about a political family of Irish descent that just rambled on and on and on. And I bought the entire series. Note to self: no more anthologies that include fantasy.
