Both were well-written stand-alone short stories.
I'm giving the collection only four stars because I did not enjoy Anthony Francis's "Stranded" as much as the first two stories. Perhaps because it references a world he has apparently previously written about or perhaps because I found the story slightly more disjointed and/or truncated than either "A Strand in the Web" or "A Host of Leeches".
All in all, well worth the price for the Kindle version and I would not have regretted paying the for a physical copy of the book either.
I can't tell you what each author did with the brief because that would give the game away, so to speak. Suffice to say each writer presents a very different take on the theme. The protagonist in each story is stranded in a different way and overcomes the inherent problems of being on their own in an abandoned situation. Recommended for all those readers who like a bit of mystery without a gory murder being the central plot.
