A mixture of short stories featuring other characters than the series' normal heroes, often the antagonist. Sadly but not unexpectedly, the best stories are those by the famous authors I already know, and none of those new-to-me struck a chord as series to be explored. However even the famous ones weren't necessarily that great, so perhaps this was just an interesting writing experiment that ultimately didn't pan out.

I think I would have liked several of these stories better if I were familiar with the series they were based on. May revisit once I have tried some more from these authors.

This is so well written it is almost tragic how uninspired and mediocre the plot turned out.
The book has a fantastic opening that immediately builds a strong connection to the MC and teases an interesting premise.
But it never manages to actually tell an interesting story.
It gets caught up in unnecessary detail a lot but not in the usual overly descriptive way.
It creates depth in places where it is really not needed and it's not relevant to anything really while neglecting other areas that are far more relevant to the story which leads to uneven pacing.
Again, the tragic thing is that it does what it does very well. It just does it at the wrong time and place.

This all sounds very negative but tbh I generally enjoyed reading this one.
It truly was heart-balm to read this after a very long string of badly written sub-par books but it just doesn't manage to convince me beyond a 3-star rating.
There is a reason why so many books even with atrocious writing are so successful. A good story needs more than just good basic writing.

Pretty decent anthology, although, like most, it's better if you're already a fan of the authors' work.
