I found this book both useful and bothersome.

Useful because almost all the previews of the books were worthwhile. I had never heard of the authors and found most of them quite appealing :) Fantasy has always been a favorite of mine and I never bore of the "overplayed" zombie attacks or mystical creatures.

As for it being bothersome, it is not due to anything in the book but the fact that the actual books cost at least ten dollars. Maybe one day I might stumble upon the title again and in a fit o
This book is just a sampler of the scifi/fantasy books that Orbit released January-March 2011. The samples range anywhere from 12 pages to about 115. I like to grab books like this every once in a while when I'm looking for a new author or just need a break from the book I was reading.

The samples in this book were all pretty good. There is a sample from Heroes by Joe Abercrombie which I have already read and is a very good book. There are a few books in there that I intend to put in my queue and
I don't want to rate this so low because I love the idea of novel samplers. Nothing in this sampler appealed to me. Some were interesting, but not interesting enough for me to add to my reading list. It was "just okay" which is why I gave it two stars instead of an "i like/enjoy it" three stars.
This was a good preview collection. While I didn't care for everything, I do have a few more books on my to-read list because of it, which is probably the best such a collection can really hope for.

unfortunately this sampler now seems largely unavailable - has it (but I'm in the UK so can't access it) or via Google-search as a DRMed .PDF or .epub
