Like any anthology, some stories I really liked, others not so much - hence the 3 stars as a middle ground. However, I do think that many of the stories that I didn't much like were a question of the type of fiction I like, not that they were poorly written. Just not my type of story. Overall, I'd recommend the book - the stories are very diverse, so if you like sci/fi and fantasy, you're likely to find some stories you like. I've found a few authors to read more of and any time I find a couple new authors, it's definitely a win!
