One of my favorite aspects of the collection is that I've now met dozens of characters from existing series. So, when I want to spend more time with the steampunk detectives or the outlander bounty hunters, I can look up their other novels and stories and get to know them better.
Why did give this book 4 stars instead of 5? When I hear "holiday collection", I expect Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanzaa to be central to the plot of the story in some way. There are a few stories that had no tie to the holidays or a tie so superficial that if you were not told that the scene took place on Christmas Eve you wouldn't have known. That said, the stories are so strong and entertaining that I'm keeping this review at 4 stars.
I strongly recommend this new collection of fantastical short stories.
