    Every so often I enjoy a group of short stories.  They tend to be hit or miss for me, but I enjoyed this one.  I liked the British museum tie in and though all four stories were different, they were all good in their own way.

    I really loved this anthology, with all four stories tied together by encounters at the British Museum. I appreciated that the stories, though not otherwise connected, were arranged in order of when they occurred. What lovely attention to detail! I also loved that Claudia Dain's was tied to her wonderful Courtesan series and that Deb Marlowe's ties into her new Half Moon House series. They are both great authors. I also loved the stories by Michelle Marcos (whom I had not read before) and Ava Stone (whom I had). Altogether a wonderful collection of novellas and well worth the money and time!
