This has the same benefit and drawback of any anthology: variety. I somewhat enjoyed roughly half of the stories and hated the rest. Overall, maybe two of them will prove memorable.

The stories are rather uneven in quality (some deserve **, some deserve ****). A couple of stories rise far above the others. But many of the authors seem to know just enough about the tarot to make obvious and simplistic plot choices. Perhaps the book is more uniformly enjoyable the less you know about the tarot deck.
