I have tooted Adams' horn before. That title should be reigning king of the original anthology world. Dozier is the reigning king of the best of anthology world. I would think original anthologies would be harder. Your not picking from he best, you are picking writers and hoping they will not let you down. Adams is starting to get competition from George R.R. Martin and this book did not help his efforts. While this was a great subject, Adams was let down by some big names. I was expecting some good stuff from Lansdale, Card, Reynolds and Howey, but there stories were just phoned in. THERE WEREN'T NO BRAINS IN THIS OPERATION.

Seanan McGuire a.k.a. Mira Grant wrote the best story. There were also some strong showings by Resnick, Winters, Yu and Williams. I am finding that at least in the short story genre, Tad Williams can always be counted on to write something interesting and entertaining.

I have read all three of Frederick Douglass' biographies, but in Tobias' Sundown I heard some exciting stuff not included in any of these biographies.

While Gigante is a good narrator, I would have liked to have heard a lot more narrators. Ross did good, but in my favorite story by McGuire, her male character had a tendency to drop his words at the end of a sentence and often I could not tell exactly what he said. The story was still good enough to make this a minor problem.
