I had backed this anthology on Kickstarter, and was really excited by the concept. For me, the idea behind this book totally paid off - I thoroughly enjoyed reading these stories. I knew only a few of the authors by reputation prior to reading this, but not most of them. I was so impressed and delighted by the stories and the worlds they transported me to while I was reading that I have short-listed most of these authors for further reading. I was engaged and delighted by the characters I met in this book, and frequently lost myself wishing I was along on the adventures they were experiencing. The writing was top-notch, and I was pleased by the wide variety of people and points-of-view represented. But mostly, it was a crazy fun read, with unicorn hunters, fairies, pilots, military personnel, princesses, schoolchildren, and all sorts of amazing heroines.
