What's nice about the book is that, despite the many different authors, each story is linked by being set in the same location, and gradually the reader gets a real sense of The Fountain, its staff, and its patrons. The individual stories all share a light-hearted, almost whimsical tone, defiantly old-fashioned - like the pub itself. There's not a bad one among them, but particular favourites of mine were 'Transients' by Stephen Baxter, "And Weep Like Alexander" by Neil Gaiman (on typically fine form), and "Book Wurms" by Andy West.
This is the kind of anthology that as a reader I both love and hate - love because it's introduced me to many new authors; hate because I'll be spending yet more money on buying books by those newly discovered authors.
