In the Introduction, Lee Child notes the difficulties for a new writer to get started. The days of pulp fiction and slick magazines are long gone. However, ezines have emerged. The problem is that ezines and small press literary magazines come and go from the scene. I did find one editor that liked my short stories and published two in ezines - but on the verge of publishing a third, she folded up shop and moved on to do other things. So it takes some hard work to keep track of emerging venues for publishing and to match up with an editor.
The International Thriller Writers has provided an opportunity for some emerging writers, both in this collection and earlier collections. They are worth sampling. Earlier collections pointed me to some very good novels that I read and reviewed on Amazon. I expect that this collection will do the same.
Some of the short stories were good, others not so. I know this is a matter of personal taste so it would be impossible to say that any of the stories were bad.
Most of the stories seemed to skim across the surface and were over before they really developed and held my attention. This I found unrewarding. Surprisingly I was not appreciative of some of the more 'famous' contributors to the eBook.
Unless you really prefer to read short stories I would avoid this title. If you really like the complexities and involvement of a plot to give you pleasure in your reading, then steer you attention towards fully fledged novels. This would not be for you.
