Eh. It was OK. The first story, A Host of Leeches by James Alan Gardner was my favorite. A Strand in the Web by Anne Bishop was why I bought the book, I love her Black Jewels books. This story was good, but predictable. Stranded by Anthony Francis was just confusing. There were too many new ideas crammed into one small story, poorly developed characters, and the overarching morals were not well incorporated into the plot. If the moral was the point, then the plot was not written well around it.

Overall, a fast read and nice to add for someone who already likes Anne Bishop. I've never heard of the other two authors. I will look up other works by them, but only James Alan Gardner's story really inspires me to read more by either of them. I did like the forwards by the authors describing how they got their ideas; origins are always interesting to me.
