It's a series of short stories set in a shared fantasy world which is part old West cowboy, part steampunk and a dash of magic. It works pretty well and the authors here (most famous is probably Scott Lynch) take their own approach to the sandbox they are playing in, while remaining true to certain central themes. The stories are all fun and at times quite clever and you sense the authors have enjoyed the experience and that comes through in the way they present their stories. Fans of Chris Wooding's Kitty Jay series would probably enjoy this and it's a shame they didn't get him to contribute a story, maybe next time.
This is well worth picking up.
