Any Daw Anthology is better than lots of other books on the market and this is no exception. It definitely has enough excellent and decent stories to keep you turning pages. However, this particular collection had about a half dozen stories that had me checking the index to see how many pages I had to finish reading.
I would recommend this to any short story fan, however, because every fantasy/sci-fi/horror short story fan has different taste and my indifference might be your brilliance. Just be warned.
There are 16 stories in all which range from (mostly) okay to a couple of truly excellent ones (the one with the "fate hotdogs" was very well done). For the most part though I found myself skipping more of them than I "normally" would and that was a disappointment. I don't typically expect every story in a collection like this to be something I'll like, which is part of the strength of each book--there are a lot of stories, so if you don't like one it's easy to move on to the next one. Unfortunately I found myself doing that more than not with this collection.
An okay collection, more for the completist than anybody else.
