After having reading works by each of the authors and visiting the Merry Sisters of Fate website, I was excited to see this book come out. Each short story features a little intro by the author of that story along with another one of the writers and their view on the story.
All of the stories have handwritten notes from the authors in the margins. Often they talk about what they liked and what worked and how they got to that point in their writing process (and maybe even what one author wishes she would be able to write as well as the others). I'm not certain if the finished book will state whose comments are whose, but in the ARC it didn't show that - so unfortunately I couldn't tell who was saying what. It would have been nice to know if it was the author commenting on her own work or if it was one of the other two making comments.
Mixed in between the stories are a few extra handwritten things from the authors. The usual - hand drawn diagrams of what subject matter makes up their brain, what their office space looks like, lists of what goes into their stories. I think that the handwritten bits are the best part of this book, especially for writers.
The stories vary in length from a couple of pages to 20ish (at least via a digital book). There are a number of standouts from each other, as well as a number that just went on and on and seemed to get lost. That was expected though, as what they have done on their website is new and different, clever and quirky.
Any fans of any of these writers will find something to delight them. If you haven't read one, two, or any of the writers - then this is a great anthology to get to know them and find which ones writing style you like best. While they are all very different, I think most that like one author will probably be fond of each of them.
