Read in June, 2012

I'm giving this book 5 stars for content and 2 stars for packaging.
The book is HUGE. It is 8x10 and about 3 inches thick (over 1000 pages), with small print and 2 columns per page. It's like an unabridged dictionary. It's awkward to hold, way too heavy and generally unwieldy. It really should have been a set of 3-4 paperbacks sold in a cardboard sleeve. If you want to read this, get an e-book version.
The content, however, is awesome. I only didn't finish one story out of over 100. I'd only read 5 of the stories before so almost all the content was brand new. Very enjoyable, very thought provoking.
