Nice, typical set of Valdemar stories. No real stand-outs this time. ( )

Good stories - no particular favorites, none that annoyed me (which is rare, in anthologies). It's amazing how many of these have turned into serials, with a chapter per anthology. A little difficult if you don't read them in reasonably close order - I haven't read one of these anthologies in probably 4-5 years, and it took me a while to remember who these people were and what their relationships were for several of the stories (which facts were necessary to understand what was going on - the relationships weren't reiterated from previous chapters). There were only 4-5 stories that were standalone - and at least one of those got a sequel in the next book. Good, but probably better to read in batches (reread the old one(s) before you go on to the newest) than just as they come out. ( )

People on this site will particularly like the story 'Ex Libris' by Fiona Patton.

Some of the stories felt like fan fiction, others were ok. Nothing really stands out. Actually, I quite liked the spider-thing at the end. ( )
