Some hits, some misses, as any compilation is likely to be. One story in particular was not only overly long (the definition of "short story" varies widely in this book) but just self-indulgent, drawn-out, and unreadable. Another story was oddly filled with dropped names of the other authors in the book, and the story read as a homework assignment hurriedly finished the morning it was due.

While most stories in the collection were engaging and well written (with a variety of styles and subjects) the misses were dire. Bought this second-hand and am certainly glad I didn't spend much on it,though worth the low price I paid.
