    Great read There are some excellent reads here! It took me a while to finish as I had to stop and take a look at the authors’ other work every time I finished one. Fans of Dresden will love this anthology.

    Some of the stories are quite good ( the Professor Croft tale, Colin McCool, Morgan Rook), some are predictable, but readable (Dane Curse), others are so awful that they should never have been published; or at the very least needed some serious editing. The Croft story is set in Wyoming and has interesting characters, a decent plot, and good writing. Morgan Rook lives in a fascinating world with exciting new monsters. The story about Yancy Lazarus read like something written by a drunken fifth gra Some of the stories are quite good ( the Professor Croft tale, Colin McCool, Morgan Rook), some are predictable, but readable (Dane Curse), others are so awful that they should never have been published; or at the very least needed some serious editing. The Croft story is set in Wyoming and has interesting characters, a decent plot, and good writing. Morgan Rook lives in a fascinating world with exciting new monsters. The story about Yancy Lazarus read like something written by a drunken fifth grader, "I don't want to brag ..." (proceeds to brag for a page and a half). "I pointed my 5.56 CALIBER gun" That would be 5.56mm, dude. Caliber is measured at a tenth of an inch, thus .50 caliber is half an inch. Thus, if the thing was 5.56 caliber, every round would be five and a half inches in diameter and weigh around three pounds. This is what editors are for. One of the last stories in the collection told the tale of a young woman living in an orphan asylum who has mysterious powers because --she is a clone--? She sneaks out of the dorm at night to beat up sexual predators, using her clone powers to hide her face (WTF?). Another short piece from the same world has the vicar going out at night to track down two wayward girls who have gotten mixed up with human traffickers. The priest beats the stuffing out of a bunch of people and then puts the girls in a cab and takes them home. The whole thing reads more like the precis for a role playing game.

    Some of the stories are pretty good. The best 2 were Dane Curse by Matt Abraham ( bought the prequel on Amazon afterwards ), and the short story Just One Night by K C Sivils ( bought the full novels on Amazon ). Short story Blood Money was OK, Croft and Wesson was OK ( but the junior mage he was mentoring got on my nerves after a while. ) The other 4 were vampire stories, and I just can't read any more of those.

    whodunits and paranormal, wow i am impressed by the variety of stories and content of said stories. these stories were all pretty good. some more so than others. getting eight unrelated stories was nice, however, i can't remember enough about any of them to give a really good review. whodunits and paranormal, wow i am impressed by the variety of stories and content of said stories. these stories were all pretty good. some more so than others. getting eight unrelated stories was nice, however, i can't remember enough about any of them to give a really good review.

    I only read Croft & Wesson as I had no interest in the others. It was exactly what I've come to expect from this author - action-packed UF with over the top characters and an easy plot.

    Great way to get to know a handful of authors This set up was nice to get to know these authors. This has sparked me to look into some of them a little more.
