How can you write two sentences and get it wrong? You're actually writing that the coming story wasn't picked up - and it has errors in it...? It's got Your Name on it for Christ's sake. Where's the pride...? It's like you just spit out a bunch of rejects to make a quick buck, which I understand but to not even proof read your copy/paste job actually pisses me off...
Then there are the short stories which aren't that bad, it's the errors that give you two stars... I could go on and on but here's a quick example... We're a few sentences in and we read 'should' where the word shoulder 'should' be...? How is that kind of thing missed in a short...? I mean really...
Not happy, feel cheated... Not cool, not cool at all...
As for the stories themselves, some are good, a couple are very good, some are not so good. A couple are pretty bad, but not so bad that I didn't read them. The author has a thread of humor running through each of the stories. Occasionally the humor thread makes sense, other times it is sorely out of place.
I kept reading, hoping for more, and more I did get. The last past of the book were a few chapters of some of his books I had already read. I understand that Konrath is a famous author and can probably get anything he wants published now, but just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
I am disappointed in the book and disappointed that one of my favorite authors published this.
