4.5 for Lest Darkness Fall, 3 or so for most of the other stories. The only thing stopping me from giving Lest Darkness Fall five stars is the lack of decent female characters (surely Antonina, aka Mrs Belisarius, could have had more than half a page?), and the way the story lagged a bit once it stopped being 'Martin lands in Gothic Rome, invents things' and turned into alternate-historical wars, though I recognise the latter is probably a personal peculiarity. Linguistics! Latin! Nobody dies horribly! It is AWESOME. I also liked The Gnarly Man quite a lot.
