There are a lot of great authors in here, but it's quite hit and miss as to how good each novella is. However, the good ones more than make up for the mediocre ones.

As with most anthologies, there are a few gems and a few duds. I've found a couple of authors through this who I want to hear more from, though, so that has to be worth something.

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.

Given the respective genres the editors write in, I assumed that Rogues, a fat collection of short stories edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, would be a mix of fantasy and SF stories, but in fact the 21 stories (mostly fairly long, in the 30-50 page range) are predominantly fantasy with a couple of crime stories and only one solidly science fiction piece.

All but a couple of the stories are good, but I was surprised to find that the ones that captivated me most were the 'straight' stories, particularly a highly entertaining tale by Bradley Denton involving the theft of a high school sousaphone and a dodgy teacher's attempts to muscle in on the action. As is the case with all the stories, the main character is something of a rogue - but also like most of them, a likeable one.

Although I'm not a great fan of swords and sorcery fantasy books, I found the short stories (which are mostly in this style), perhaps because of the tongue-in-cheek rogue main characters, highly entertaining, and in a couple of cases I noted down an author for further reading. I'm wondering if this sampler effect is why the book is such amazingly good value - a 900+ page paperback for just £2. Whatever the reason it's a great read.

Interestingly, of the three big names in the book, only one came across well - this was Gillian Flynn, whose books I've never read, but who provides a thoughtful non-fantasy tale. The story I was most looking forward to was by Neil Gaiman - and this was a significant disappointment. I love urban fantasies, and Gaiman's Neverwhere is one of my favourite books.
