So, without intending to denigrate the work of any of the writers included in the collection, I'm going to be very specific about some of my likes and my dislikes.
Among those I enjoyed:
"The Judgement" by Anne Perry--This one or Rusch's work was definitely my favorite in the book.
"Corpse Vision" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"The Unicorn Hunt" by Michelle West
"Star of David" by Patricia Briggs--Although the ending was sentimental, still I found the story satisfying
And a couple that disappointed or actually annoyed me:
"The Night of Their Lives" by Max Allans Collins--It seemed to me that the whole point of the story was merely to arrive at the final sentence, and that just wasn't enough for me.
"Ninja Rats on Harleys" by Elizabeth A Vaughan--This story annoyed me more than any other in the book. Why? Because there was so much to like about it. I loved the writing, the cast of characters, and the premise. Having established this much, however, the author just stopped. There was no real story here (no there...there). It read like the first chapter of a novel--a novel I might well have enjoyed quite a bit. As is, however, the story more than disappointed.
I know I'll reread this collection again and again because I love to revisit great writing! And I have a LOT of new authors to check out. Something that I really appreciated about this anthology is that even when it was obvious that the story was situated in a world the author had created, I didn't feel lost in that world or as if I was missing anything - there was plenty of context for someone who hadn't read whatever series it might have originated from.
