I liked it a lot. Even though it was short stories so it should have been easy to put down that actually made it harder to put down... just one more... and ops is it 3 am already.
Very enjoyable - especially all the Tortall stories. ( )

May be a good way to introduce folks to these realms... nice to pick up for holiday reading. ( )

I'm listening to the audio, and I can't tell if the reader is influencing some of my enjoyment level. There are multiple readers. I've had to skip three stories because they were downright unsatisfactory. But other stories are solid and welcome. There is a plumping out of the universe, glimpsing tail ends of other stories and characters already familiar.

The last two move out of Tortall and inhabit modern urban fantasy. Jarring. ( )

Some interesting stories, particularly Student of Ostriches, and some niches filled. Worth a visit ( )

Fun collection of stories that are all different yet cohesive. ( )

My story began as my mother carried me in her belly to the great Nawolu trade fair.
