This is like most anthologies, it is a mixed bag, there were some here I really enjoyed and some I wasn't overly fussed with. Be wrong of me to go into too much detail because I suspect everyone will have different tastes and preferences, but I do suspect that most people will find it mixed. Highlights for me were discovering some new authors to investigate (Michael Swanwick. Phyllis Eisenstein) and some high quality output from Scott Lynch and Neil Gaiman and Patrick Rothfuss. As a big fan of Joe Abercrombie I was slightly underwhelmed with his contribution (maybe because it was not as dark as his usual output).

So, overall a mixed bag, not as good as it should have been given the stature of the authors here but still plenty here to enjoy.

Format: Kindle Edition
‘Rogues’ is a new anthology signed by editors George R.R. Martin and Gardner R. Dozois that consists of 21 stories though majority of readers will be most probable attracted with new ‘A Game of Thrones’ story written by Martin himself.

Inside its covers reader can find following stories:
George R.R. Martin - Everybody Loves a Rogue (Introduction)
Joe Abercrombie - Tough Times All Over
Gillian Flynn - What Do You Do?
Matthew Hughes - The Inn of the Seven Blessings
Joe R. Lansdale - Bent Twig
Michael Swanwick - Tawny Petticoats
David W. Ball - Provenance
Carrie Vaughn - The Roaring Twenties
Scott Lynch - A Year and a Day in Old Theradane
Bradley Denton - Bad Brass
Cherie Priest - Heavy Metal
Daniel Abraham - The Meaning of Love
Paul Cornell - A Better Way to Die
Steven Saylor - Ill Seen in Tyre
Garth Nix - A Cargo of Ivories
Walter Jon Williams - Diamonds From Tequila
Phyllis Eisenstein - The Caravan to Nowhere
Lisa Tuttle - The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives
Neil Gaiman - How the Marquis Got His Coat Back
Connie Willis - Now Showing
Patrick Rothfuss - The Lightning Tree

As is the usual case with story collection edited by Martin this one also doesn’t disappoint with its length – more than 800 pages of well-made text that doesn’t share genre or theme, from fantasy to thriller fans inside you’ll be able to find something for you, only loosely united by the motive of rogue leading character.

Speaking about the quality, as it’s always the case with the anthologies, stories are not always easy to compare because it depends on question of personal liking and intention, why on the first place you bought it.

Very useful for newcomers to this type of genre, gives a good flavour of what is available and perhaps pursue writers never heard of or may have done but discarded. Enjoyed the stories but advise it as a dip and pick read as reading all at once can bring on eating a whole box of chocolates at once feeling, overwhelmed!

Began reading S/F 9 years of age still do at 75 years of age. First books,were anthologies; met many a fine writer and many crappy ones; at 9 devoured them all. Seldom read short stories now but 'Rogues' brought back all that pleasure and most of the enthrallment. Glad I came across it .Before I am corrected my purchases then were from second hand bookshops who did not have 'Fantasy' section, mostly what I bought, for pence, were jumbled up on a table labelled Science Fiction even Sci/Fi came a lot later. Had to hide them from my Mum who deemed them worse than comics but I saved on bus fares by walking miles to get those pennies.

A really great wonder of marvels here. There is not a twist nor turn that these Rogues would not make. Or make to get what they desired. Every tale is great, you never know what will happen, you keep guessing, right to the end. Flawless writing, intricate personalities, a world described in very few pages. I have been stealing, conniving, spying with these stories. But I have also felt a righteous jolt when a really bad person was brought to right. Which is always what happens. Morality and ethics are issues here.
A sumptious read, and I really recommend it.

I won't list the stories again. Mixed bag sums them up very well. A couple are rather too long for their content, and there are no masterpieces here, but most are readable and quite enjoyable. The George Martin was disappointing - more just a list of past events than a real story line, and rather pointless if you haven't read the novels. Good value for money, but nothing I feel compelled to read again.
