I bought this compilation because I am a fan of several of the writers. However, I have to say I was somewhat disappointed in the quality of several of the stories. If your not a regular reader of some of these already established characters it may be confusing. I've always felt a short story should stand on its own rather than a continuation of an existing "universe" or storyline.

Charlaine Harris' story Bacon is in the same universe of the Sookie Stackhouse series but the story itself is a stand-alone with new characters. The reader is excellent.

However, Jim Butcher's story is the same character I've read in other compilations and I still feel I am missing something. I've not read any of the Dresden books.

Patricia Brigss and Rachel Caine deliver good stories with emotion. And the readers are interesting.

PN Elrod's contribution was ridiculous and I feel completely incongruous with the overall theme of the rest of the stories. The reader is awful. I had to skip two thirds of the story.

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!
