As can be expected from an anthology, there are stronger stories and weaker stories. The first and last stories are both good - though the ones I thought were best are scattered through the middle.

There are a few stories that are very weird. In a good way, I think. I wound up rereading one three times because it skipped around so bizarrely but the overall concept was fascinating. There was only one story that was blah enough that I wound up skipping it. (I was very sleepy at the time. Might have skimmed it otherwise.) Unsurprisingly, my favourites were the weird ones and the "the world is falling apart" ones.

About half to two thirds of the stories would be worth rereading, and a handful are excellent.

disappointing. If you've not read all these stories before perhaps it will be of interest, but I didn't fell the authors' stories I knew of but hadn't read were close to their best, nor the 'theme' was shown very well in any of the stories.

If you like some of these authors seek out their own books as this anthology seemed a waste of talent and paper
