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.

Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Rachel Caine, Caren Chance, PN Elrod, Charlaine Harris....et al. did a fine job of mixing up stories. (No Sookie from Charlaine, but I liked it). Anthologies offer a person a chance to hear new authors, and old authors writing different styles. I enjoyed 90% of this and I do with most para normal anthologies. Don't expect the same old thing and allow yourself to enjoy.

Consider this an audiobook equivalent of 'dipping your toe in the water first' before committing to the swim. The field of sci fi fantasy has a bewildering level of choice and I thought this audiobook was brilliant because it gives you a snapshot of authors works to experience all with their own styles. Everyone is bound to find a future favorite author who's works to pursue! The choice of narrators is excellent and each allow you to get lost in the story for a while.

I'm not normally one for short stories but I really enjoyed listening to this collection. It's a good way to discover new authors and also to hear new stories from favourite ones. I'll certainly be checking out some of the contributors.
