I am not a huge fan of short stories, and as a result I struggled a bit with this collection. James is an excellent storyteller and I think the short stories Connoisseur, The Monk and the Abbess and The Devil's Tavern best reflects this talent. The Devil's Tavern is a peek into where the idea for the Caretakers of the Imaginarum Geographica (Here, There Be Dragons) took root.

The ultimate goal of this grouping of short stories is the preview of the Mythworld series which has never before been printed in English. I am hoping these books are made available soon as the taste that James provided at the end certainly has me waiting for more!
