Wasn't sure what to expect as I started reading the short stories. But one thing I did know I was in for a treat as it started off with a short story by Michael Munez and familiar characters from "Zeus is Dead" especially the return of one of my favorite character Thalia. The book had a great flow to it almost as though the stories kinda merger with each other.....meaning the stories didn't feel out of place with each other .... even thought they all had a mutual topic, I have read other short s ...more

An anthology of four excellent short stories by talented writers. I'd read a couple of these authors before and enjoyed the shout-outs to their other works; this anthology, though, is stand-alone and will likely be a good introduction for people looking for new authors in the humour/spec-fic cross-over zone. One of the strengths was the length of the stories - they were long enough to be satisfying, while not too long as to drag on.

Definitely worth checking out.

This collection of 4 short stories includes one by the author of Wizzy Wig, need I say more?!
Mything Digits is OK, and probably better if you already have relationship with this author's (Munz) writings. Only about a 3 for me. Style is Personal is better, and a solid 4. Temporally Misplaced and The Foot Bridge (hey, Toesy!) are 5s. Nice set of shorts - well worth the buck I paid for them!
