I own this book in paper, mostly because of my hero Jim Butcher, but I enjoy several of the other authors as well, and this collection has some good stories. I bought the audio book because I like to 're-read' things and have a long commute everyday. Most of the people selected to narrate these stories were just not pleasant to listen to, especially for the Jim Butcher selection, which really was a disappointment.

Pronunciation, pronunciation, pronunciation!

I am a great fan of the urban fantasy genre and also of things Celtic. I realize that current stories of the supernatural often include Irish and Scottish references. I was appalled at the pronunciation of fairly common celtic words and idioms. Samhain is never, as far as I know, pronounced SAM-hain, it is SOW-in; Seamus is not SEE-mus, but SHAY-mus; likewise Riordan is pronounced REAR-don, not ree-OR-din, etc.. This was extremely distracting and spoiled the experience of a good anthology. Whoever chooses the readers should at the very least check to see if they know how to pronounce the words contained in the stories. This would have been a simple process, especially with the resources of the internet. I cannot recommend this recording. Read the book!
