I think this is my favorite volume of the whole series. A random assortment of people from various dimensions are thrown together in an inn at the World’s End during a "reality storm." A round of fantastical storytelling ensues, a la Chaucer, which was a great pleasure to read.

Unlike Brief Lives, which was a somewhat pointless story that felt like it was contrived in order to get certain plot points out there, World’s End seems to concern itself not so much with pushing this big, plodding tragedy narrative forward than it does with weaving a series of excellent, memorable, fantastical stories.
