There's great balance of backstory/world building in these short stories. The stories themselves stand alone pretty well - they've got the same dynamic and engaging style as the larger Traveler's Gate books. I did read them in context, so I'm not sure how well they hold up without having read the other parts of the series.
It's a fantastic project for the author as fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the final instalment of the Traveler's Gate. I know I enjoyed this collection and the last - I'm now looking forward to the final short story collection just as much as I'm waiting for the final book!
