You could say I’m partial, because one of my stories ended up in this anthology, but I really enjoyed it. Some of my favorites?

A Report to the Commissioner cracked me up. This line, in particular: “…and with half the crew out of sorts and whelping in every available corner, he wasn’t pleased to have to upset his commanding officer.”

No Rest for the Reannotated was a good one. What would happen if a future society could bring back the greatest minds in history to help solve their problems?

As the title states, this is a multi-genre anthology of science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, romance, and literary flash fiction. However, the romance and literary categories only had one fiction each.

Even though they’re all so very short, I found this collection of works to be very well-written and well-compiled. It was a highly enjoyable read for me, though a lot of times I felt somewhat disappointed. There are some that seem to end rather abruptly, leaving me confused and/or unsatisfied

I was turned onto this collection by one of the contributors, a fellow forum poster and author of a published novel (so one more than me!) This is a free collection and can be found at all major ebook sites. The idea behind it is simple--offer a bunch of very short (3-4 page) stories from a raft of authors to allow the reader to quickly sample their styles. The hope is the reader will enjoy at least some of what they read and seek out more work from the same authors.

It's a good idea and, I think

I only liked this 4 stars worth because 1) There are a variety of genres included in this collection, some I normally read, some I don't, and 2) It was frustrating to me that each story in the collection was over just when felt like it was getting started. However, I'm thinking of recommending it to my wife, the middle school language arts teacher because it seems like a great tool for starting discussions or essays. "What happens next?" "What happened before the story started?" etc.

Although I normally review/rate each book that I read I will not be rating anthologies. This will allow me the freedom to just read the stories that are clean (the only ones I am willing to read) in an anthology and skip/ignore the rest. The only way that I will rate an anthology is if all of the authors have verified that the stories included in the anthology are free of sex, swearing and graphic violence.

I will sometimes still make notes about the stories as you can see below:

Some crazy stuff!! Lol

I admit, at first I was confused reading the first several stories in the book. I'm not sure if I was tired or if a better introduction would have explained the abrupt endings of some of these short stories? But I initially felt a bit bewildered, as if a door had been slammed in my face just as I started to get into each of the short pieces. As I settled into reading, which did take a little bit, I started to get it, and then I was hooked. Not only that, but I was feeling a

I love anthologies of short stories - it gives you a taste of an author or a genre that can suck you into a wonderful black hole of reading. I like that this book has the works split up by genre. I like that each author gets a blurb after their story to draw you in to read more of their works. I really liked that there was only one story from the romance genre. The only thing I disliked (and this may be personal preference) is that I felt like they front-loaded this book. I was roped in immediat ...more

This is a collection of stories that are each only a few pages long, which is a difficult format to tell a story well. While most of this collection was subpar, there were several stories in the scifi and horror sections that were quite good. The two mystery stories featured were fantastic; I wish that section has been much longer. Overall, not an awful collection for a free kindle book that is able to be read in short sections over time.

It was okay. Some stories were good, others were average. There was one that I skipped through, but I don't remember the name of it. Still, not an awful read. I like anthologies like this so I can come across new authors that I normally wouldn't.

Many indie stories.

The stories are quick reads of course, suitable for the thinking seat. The one I enjoyed the most was the George Donnelly take on George Orwell 's 1984.

Think it's permafree, but found it either through one of my free book sites or by looking through what J.T. Williams had to offer in his stories. No idea what date originally reviewed on amazon because the bloody review didn't take. Noticed it was missing review when went to check some books reviewed a while back some time late november.
