Read from December 21 to 26, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

As with most anthologies, this is a bit of a mixed bunch, but they do at least have a unifying theme: (view spoiler).

Looking at the TV episodes, they all involved at least one character from the "Prime" universe interacting with the Mirror Universe, and that provided a contrast. Since these stories are all set entirely in the Mirror Universe, it poses a problem: you can have a story where all the familiar characters are evil (which is depressing) or you can say that the counterparts are also noble (so there's not much difference from the Prime universe). Some authors handle this better than others: I particularly recommend the stories by PAD and KRAD, but I strongly disliked Friedman's Stargazer story.
