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.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Dec. 2014
Format: Hardcover
Rogues is a truly fantastic read for any fantasy fans out there. It's a compilation of twenty-one original short stories from some of the genre's best writers, and includes such greats as George R. R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Neil Gaiman and Joe Abercrombie.

There are some very exciting hidden gems included in this anthology, the best - and my initial reason for wanting to read the book - being The Lightning Tree by Patrick Rothfuss. This particular story is all about Bast from The Kingkiller Chronicles and is, I think, worth the cover price alone. Other stand out stories for me are by George R. R. Martin, Scott Lynch, Garth Nix and Cherie Priest. I'm not always a fan of Neil Gaiman's work, but I also really enjoyed his story!

As with any anthology, there are always going to be a handful of stories that don't particularly stand out or fit in. There aren't many of those in Rogues, and I really did enjoy every one of the stories on offer. Obviously I have my favourites, but I'm sure that's the same for every reader.

Whether you want to read this book for one lone story, or for the collective work, it's worth owning either way. Game of Thrones fans will need this for their collections, and any Rothfuss fanatics out there will love getting to know Bast a little better. There are stories in this book I'll read again and again, and that's the best compliment I can give this anthology.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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!
