I’m usually a straight through reader, even on anthologies, but, since my November’s tend to be a bit nutty (NaNoWriMo!) I started picking through this, reading based on my knowledge of the authors, the characters, etc.

I did eventually read the whole book despite my intentions not to–and found a few new authors I want to check out, as well as least one I have no interest in ever laying eyes on again. In that regard it was educational.

Loved, loved, loved the Dresden story. Rumor has it Jim Butcher will reach the end of his long plan for this character in the next full-length book and that makes me sad. I read this story first to get a Dresden fix while waiting for the next book.

The Charlaine Harris tale was pretty epic, too. It took place in the world setting of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, but with characters completely separate from the series… “Bacon!”

The rest were, sadly, largely forgettable stories, though most of them were enjoyable to read and, like I said, I did eventually get through the whole book, I just didn’t go in order…
