    Poorly executed

    2431 pages with no table of contents to let you go to any particular story, and chopped-up lines of text that are almost impossible to scan and very tiring to read. Luckily it's cheap enough to delete.

    Thoroughly delightful collection

    The title says it all - there seems to be a little bit of everything. I have enjoyed almost every story.
