While I didn't read all the stories in this collection (I cherry-picked ones by my favorite authors), the ones I did, were mostly excellent.

Some of my favorites were Laini Taylor's haunting "The girl who woke the dreamer" Soooo good. Vivid imagery and creepy yet hopeful too.

"What the Hell have you done, Sophie Roth" by Gayle Forman

The eerily awesome "Krampuslauf" by Holly Black -- she is the best at writing dark tales, really

"Midnights" by Rainbow Rowell was pretty good, but not what I would usually expect from this author. Probably I just wanted the story more developed to get a good grasp on the characters.

"It's a Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown" by Stephanie Perkins was just okay too. Nothing really special but still earned a smile.
