Short stories

The majority of the stories are interesting and provide info on characters in the author's series. Some of the short stories have a beginning and end while others seem to give you just the middle. There is a different narrator for each story. As with other anthologies you get great and not so great stories and your opinion just depends on which author drew you to the story. For me, I picked it up for Faith Hunter's story.

3 or 4 stars if not for formatting issue

if you don't already read/listen to at least a few of the series I wouldn't recommend this. I enjoyed 5 of the 17 stories.

The not listing the chapters is infuriating. each chapter is a different story/series and in no way shape or form are they described in any way other than "chapter x". I have a feeling this would make a WAY better book than audio book. I would have given it 3 or 4 stars if they had any foresight regarding this problem.

Pretty bad. Sorry to say

Not very good at all. Forced narration doesn't sound real. The stories are all pretty poor.

No, Thank-you

They have tried to save money by not using the correct narrators and it does not work. The Faith Hunter story should have been read by Khristine Hvam and as a person who has read and listen to all the Jane Yellowrock novels and short stories it felt unreal. I might have felt differently if I have purchased the paper book or kindle when I could have put mental voices to the stories.
The same is true of the Jim Butcher story Paul Boehmer is not James Marsters.
Only buy this if you are not bothered by who reads the stories
