A collection of 25 stories, one of which (by Fritz Leiber) I had read before, two of which I gave up on, and only one of which (by Christopher Priest) inspired me to look for the author's other works. There were also a couple of authors whose work I was already familiar with. The rest were so-so merging on meh but not actually bad.

Shakespearean Whodunnits is an anthology comprised of short story adaptations of Shakespeare's original plays. Most of them are based on loose ends at the ends of the original plays, exploring a particular character's death.

While it claims you do not need to have any knowledge of the plays, I would highly recommend knowing all of Shakespeare's plays thoroughly before reading this anthology, as most were confusing if you haven't read the original.

There were a couple of gems in here, but most of them felt rushed and underdeveloped, like a rough outline of how that story were to go if it were written in full. All of them were quite forgettable. Additionally, several of the short stories had a lot of racism and sexism, even in excess of Shakespeare's original plays, which I was not a fan of.

If you're looking for a Shakespeare retelling or adaptation, I would look to full length stories focusing on one of his plays

Should be the big book of extremely bad science fiction.
Seems the editor, and the authors, were more interested in the central concepts of the stories, and to hell with the rest. Things like whether whatever came next was sensical or not. Like a bunch of modern "action" movie scenes. Whatever goes on from one moment to the next doesn't matter except that each should be a big "ooh! Shiny!" Ball of something or other.
I made note to search through my Goodreads lists and remove anything else from any of these writers.… (more)

I can't remember many details, but this was a nice look at how people conceptualized Mars before we knew that it was a barren desert.
