Overall, a good collection of stories.
My favorite was the first one, "Mortal in Mysteria," by Susan Grant. It's a fully-realized story, and the main cast was kept to a reasonable size so that the characters could be well fleshed-out.
The second story in the collection, "Alone Wolf," by MaryJanice Davidson, was my least favorite. It appears that this is a short story that falls within a larger framework - i.e. it is part of a larger series or storyline, and thus relies on knowledge of that framework for the story to work. As this was the first thing I'd read by Davidson, the whole story kind of fell flat for me.
The remaining two stories ("The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them," by Gena Showalter and "Candy Cox and the Big Bad (Were)Wolf," by P.C. Cast) are somewhat intertwined, borrowing characters from one another. So, these should be read together. I enjoyed both of them, but I didn't find either of them to be spectacular.
