After Hours is based around the idea of a Bar that moves through space and time with a bartender that can never leave. Each story is set in a different city and place throughout history and the styles range from pure fantasy to comedy to horror. Overall this is a strong anthology but the arrangement of the stories in chronological order at times does them a disservice as the tones change more than the eras. I would recommend this anthology for lovers of the variety possible in fantasy and readers of urban fantasy and especially of playing with mythology. Gods and mythological figures are constantly appearing in the stories though the most powerful characters tend to be the humans. ( )
