Bill | 1596 comments New Anthology by Gardner R. Dozois in the same vein as Dangerous Women and Rogues. Will be creating threads for each of the stories if anyone would like to jump in and discuss.

My hold actually came in much sooner than I expected, so I'll probably start tomorrow.

Bill | 1596 comments Awesome. Just making threads now.

Edit: Threads done. Think this was the longest it has ever taken me to make threads. There seems to be a major disconnect between my brain and fingers today.

Bill | 1596 comments Sorry been sick so kind of stalled on this one. Might pick it up in audio so I can get back into it.

Feel better. I've really enjoyed this collection I just have the Martin story left.

Bill | 1596 comments Thanks Rob. My library loan ran out so I bought the audiobook. Just returned it because instead of breaking the book up by story there are over 200 chapters in the table of contents. Going to wait for it from the library again before continuing. Sucks as I liked all the stories but one so far.

Ouch. Yeah, no way I'd do that either. When I get review copies of audio books they are often like that. I spend a few hours making them into 1 file/chapter. It's a pain, but worth the effort imho.

Bill | 1596 comments It’s really disappointing because it just seems like they were lazy putting it together. I wouldn’t have minded if they at least marked where the stories started but was pretty much impossible to locate where I had left off.
