    Recommended.

    Some reviews I have seen complain that they would rather see their favor authors concentrate on the next novel rather than produce short stories for multiple-authored Anthologies. I disagree. Authors use the opportunity to more fully introduce us to what is normally less major characters in their full novels or an a small prequel to a major character. Patricia Briggs does this for Warren in "A Red Plague of Pearls". I also use the Anthologies to discover new authors and maybe new series without plunging fully into a novel. While this did not happen with "Down These Strange Streets", I enjoyed the stories presented.

    Full novels much preferred

    I am not saying that this is not good, actually for these authors to come along in one book and to be edited by Martin himself it is already big. However, I would have enjoyed it more if they stick to writing a full story than a LOT of short stories.

     I bought this book because there were stories by Patricia Brigg

     I bought this book because there were stories by Patricia Briggs and Charlaine Harris in it and I love their work. Like with all short story collections, I was hoping it would introduce me to some authors that I hadn't yet read and it was successful in that, but there were also several that I didn't even bother to finish which is about what I expected.
