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...more
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.
