This is an older collection, but the stories are fun and interesting. Great if you just don't have the time for a long read, but would like to relax a few minutes. I am surprised that no noe else has had anything to say about it!

With Anne McCaffrey as editor, I was expecting stories of a good standard. I was bitterly disappointed - I couldn't even finish some.

By Jeremy Tassoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked this up at a used bookstore recently. The concept looked interesting, and the list of contributors fairly impressive. However 90% of the stories left me with the impression of "Was there a point to that?". Stylistically the writing was up to par for each of the authors, but many of the stories themselves were rather disjointed or had a feeling of incompleteness.

HASH(0x9216fc18) out of 5 stars Couldn't get in to it 13 Sept. 2009
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was a huge Anne McCaffrey fan as a teen, and continue to be an avid reader of Sci Fi and Fantasy. I bought the book long ago because it was an Anne McCaffrey. It seems to sell itself on big names but doesn't deliver. I agree with the comment that the stories seem disjointed and it's hard to see the point. I don't mind reading amusing "fluff", but this wasn't even entertaining for me. It's probably a good indicator that there are a bunch of used copies selling for 1 cent, if it was worth anything I'd sell mine, but since it's not it's in the first shipment to Goodwill.
