    Good, but a little fast-paced

    I picked this book out of random at my local library, and loved the first it at first. As I read along, some stories were a bit fast-paced and diffacult to grasp, and others didn't really have enough edge to make them amazing. But, with such short stories, usually this happens. You're going to like some more then others. Blood Roses, for example, was one that was a bit jumbled up, I had to think it over and get things straight before I read too far. I loved that there was more sci-fi in this one than the first book, though. Despite the diffaculties to understand, this book was amazing, and I'll recommend it highly to anyone who doesn't like reading through the same story and plot for 500 pages, or people who like to think about the meaning of what they're reading.

    Pretty good

    I don't read a lot of short stories so I wasn't that interested when I first came by this book. But, being an avid reader, I checked it out and read it anyway. Some of the stories are very confusing or just plain boring, but others are very good. One of my favorites was In the House of the Seven Librarians. It was a very sweet story and I will admit to readin it twice. I also enjoyed Wintermoon Wish, I'll Give You My Word, Hives, and The House on the Planet.
