I had a lot of trouble getting into this collection. It starts out promsing - in fact, the first story in the collection is my favorite. However, the remaining stories simply didn't engage my interest. They either skimped on characterization, or on plot.
The short story form is often one of the most difficult. It is far from easy to have a fully-realized character as well as a full plot. Sadly, most of these authors, if you'll forgive the pun, fall short.
