4.0 out of 5 stars Better Editing Than Usual June 19, 2011
I have slowly been reading my way through this quite varied collection and I have to add my request to the prior reviewers: Why is there such poor editing as a whole in this collection? Why no information as to the publication of the stories? And so forth.

I will say that this this collection struck me as a better group of stories. For some reason I enjoyed this batch more than usual.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quibble May 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
I love these anthologies, and have read many, thanks to Kindle. My small quibble is this: Is there a reason why the year of publication of the stories is not included? I realize it's a small thing, that doesn't really detract from the imagination and storytelling within the anthologies, but it would be nice to know the era of the authors' careers.
