A definite mixed bag, but as has been noted elsewhere multiple times, anthologies usually are. I've owned this long enough to know which stories to skip. Also, since this is pretty much sanctioned fanfiction in many ways, there's a lot of fill in the blanks and let me explain what I think was going through the character's head ("The Stranger Inside" would be a prime example) stories.

"Chasing Hairy" is almost worth the cost of admission by itself, though sadly short. Very funny interview with

A collection of non-canon prose pieces detailing individual members of the X-Men throughout the team's history. While some stories, such as Jean Grey's WWII connection and Gambit's early thief days, fall short, others - like Changeling's diary and Rogue's multiple personality conflict - make up for it.

A collection of short stories about the X-men, some are better than others. I wish there was a Gambit and Rogue together story, but alas there wasn't. Rogue's reflection on living with Carol in her head and the stories featuring Angel and the Changeling were particularly good.

Some stories are fun enough, but when you take the graphic out of graphic novels, you end up with something that ultimately lacks subtlety and reads a little to much like fan fiction.
