The Jim Butcher story was worth the price alone, but this is a delightful- and delightfully performed for the most part, collection of stories. The Harry Dresden story was masterful in writing as well as performance.
One of the early stories is a bit too fantasy for my tastes, and relied upon a confusing list of fanciful beings and items which was very chaotic. Added to the annoying "read", was an annoying voice that made it intolerable (I will let you figure out which one I refer to: Hint: It will be obvious). If it's not on the page it's not on the stage however, as the same voice actress rendered a stunning performance on a later story.
Overall I recommend this collection highly- look at the klinker as an extra that doesn't matter, but don't let it stop you from picking this up- heck, most collections like this have only a couple good stories, this has only one mediocre one!
Harry Dresden. The writing and performace were both 5 star.
Depth of field in his ability to range from believeable woman to Harry himself.
Laughter was common.
A must have in the Short Story Genre collection of Audio Books.
I really liked this collection of stories and the characters. Some of them were just a bit short but enjoyable. I got a chance to listen to other authors and see if I would enjoy other stories by the authors.
The variety of the settings and the various authors made for a good read.
I enjoyed all of the stories. I have started listening to Jim Butcher's Furies series as a result. These collections are a great way to meet new authors!
My favorite genres are absurdist humor, Sci-fi & modern fantasy, but, as you can see, I'll read just about anything. Don't mind the typos.
I like these authors but I didn't really like any of the stories. I'd pass on this one.
a good collection of urban fantasy, each tale follows character as they work within a modern world with fantasy elements mixed in. while a few are more complex with their fantasy elements others are so perfectly simplistic and detailed. ranging from a full blown post apocalypse fantasy world to the roaring 20s there's a little something for everyone within this collection of stories.
I'm a suspense, drama, paranormal and sci-fi junkie! I dislike "bodice rippers" and love stories. Dark Tower and Harry Potter are favorites.
I found every single story to be a good listen. The narration was great as well.
This was an entertaining read. I was familiar with a couple of the authors and some of the stories (if not all?) were about characters in their existing fictional world settings. I think readers who are already familiar with the authors' previous works will gain added enjoyment from the stories, but they are all good stand alone stories and don't require prior knowledge of the authors or world settings to be enjoyed, and could be a good starting point for anyone.
I was so disappointed by this collection of short stories it seemed to have been written by depressed high school students. Super downers! Not inspiring or particularly creative I was unable to finish this collection it was a total waste of a credit.
Bought this due to Dresden and found a new author or maybe two. However, I had trouble listening to the stories. Not my favorite audio books, and will stick with what I know.
