A good set of stories; Stabenow, the Todds, Child, Winspear, Maron and Bradley were very good. ( )

These aren't straight pastiches, but I love that about it. But it has the same problem that plagues short story collections; some stories you like, some stories you don't. I like Neil Gaiman's (and that story actually was a pretty straightforward pastiche, if a little... Neil Gaiman-y), and the collection did introduce me to some mystery writers I have heard about but haven't read yet (like Alan Bradley, Dana Stabenow, and Jacqueline Winspear) who did pretty decent stories. The one story that I hated was the comic by Colin Cotterill, but only because it wasn't my sense of humor at all. What is my sense of humor? I have been told that I'm "the funny one" and also that I don't have a sense of humor at all. HAHAHA!!! ( )

Very much a mixed bag of stories. I had already read the one by Neil Gaiman, and it remains my favorite of this collection. I wound up abandoning several stories partly finished, especially toward the end of the book. ( )

I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but if there's one area where I'm going to like them, it's detective stories. This collection seems like a real mixed bag to me - some are quite good, others just never get anywhere. ( )

The first few stories are a bit slow and dry. Some others are okay. But Neil Gaiman's "A Taste for Honey" makes the book worth the purchase price. ( )
