Description

A thrilling collection of 21 original stories by an all-star list of contributors - including a new A Game of Thrones story by George R. R. Martin!

If you’re a fan of fiction that is more than just black and white, this latest story collection from number-one New York Times best-selling author George R. R. Martin and award-winning editor Gardner Dozois is filled with subtle shades of gray. Twenty-one all-original stories, by an all-star list of contributors, will delight and astonish you in equal measure with their cunning twists and dazzling reversals. And George R. R. Martin himself offers a brand-new A Game of Thrones tale chronicling one of the biggest rogues in the entire history of Ice and Fire.

Follow along with the likes of Gillian Flynn, Joe Abercrombie, Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss, Scott Lynch, Cherie Priest, Garth Nix, and Connie Willis, as well as other masters of literary sleight-of-hand, in this rogues gallery of stories that will plunder your heart - and yet leave you all the richer for it.

Came for the Rothfuss..

...stayed for all the others
Note: This is a CROSS-GENRE ANTHOLOGY. I got it for all the Fantasy/SciFi authors, but many of the tales fit other story types. There's a couple of mysteries, a horror story, even a pulpy detective story! The Rothfuss, Martin, and Abercrombie are great.

Like any collection of many authors and an ensemble of readers, there are a variety of results. There are some good readings of kinda lame stories. There are a couple of sub-par performances of very good stories. All of the stories in this collection (except 'Bad Brass' - reads like a puerile but profanity-laced Nancy Drew; 'Bent Twig' - just plain awful; and 'The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives' - misanthropic feminist drivel) are at least decent. Some are very good...even excellent (see 'The Caravan To Nowhere' and 'The Lightning Tree'). If you have an open mind and eclectic tastes, this collection is great. If you're looking for strict Fantasy/SciFi, look elsewhere.

I was a little worried by some raters noting the messed-up format for this production - downloaded in multiple chunks for each tale and apparently no way to navigate. Not so. Each "Chapter" is an individual story, listed with the title in the menu. Each is preceeded by a short CV for the author. Pretty clean, actually. They must have fixed it.

This compendium is a decent 3.5 Stars out of 5 for fans of short stories.

I highly recommend these stories. Here's why

31 stories; all interesting.
Introduces many new authors and contains some of my favourites as well. Thinking back now I can remember some of my favourite characters. They average 1.5 hours.
