We all know the complaint about some anthologies--some of the stories are great, some are drek, and many in the middle are just average. So I was quite pleased when I read A Girl's Guide to Guns and Monsters that, even though I wasn't its target demographic, the quality of the stories held up at an above average level throughout the book even with a mix of monsters, mayhem, mood, and market profile of the various authors. One minor detraction from the anthology is that a number of the stories are set in the worlds of the individual author's other writing, which leaves those not familiar with those worlds/characters at a slight disadvantage. For those interested in seeing earlier installments of Elizabeth Vaughan's amusing tale of Wan Sui Ye, grab a copy of Furry Fantastic (DAW 2006) and Zombie Raccoons & Killer Bunnies (DAW 2009) or, better yet, contact DAW and insist that they get Vaughan to write up the entire tale for a stand-alone novel. (By the way, much better cover art for Girl's Guide than the art for Zombie Raccoons & Killer Bunnies in my humble opinion.)
