This is a collection of short stories in a variety of genre's. There is mystery, romance, historical and science fiction. With that kind of mixed bag it is to be expected that I didn't like all the stories. I thought the Science Fiction was mostly stupid and the romance and the historical didn't have enough time to truly develop so seemed to end very abruptly (also a hazard of the short story). Still, there were several stories that were very well done and I enjoyed them.
A collection with a great kick-off theme, comprised of stories of wildly varying craft. Susan Muira, JA Konrath/Henry Perez, and Mary Welk were the stand-out authors for me--Muira for the affecting nature of the story in spite of first person/present tense, Welk for the original and intriguing nature of her missing person mystery, and Konrath/Perez simply because they clearly had fun combining their worlds and it shows.
