This was a pretty good collection of stories. All of them are based in one way or another on rock and roll music. It a cool concept and it was carried off fairly well here. The majority of the stories are short and all of them are fast reading. I don't know if this makes them better or worse, but they are still there and they are still enjoyable. And since I happened to recognize almost every author and like their respective styles, picking out favorites became difficult. But here they are.

"Bob Dylan, Troy Johnson, and The Speed Queen" by F. Paul Wilson - A nobody decides to time travel to become a somebody

"Requiem" by Brian Hodge - A band with pure motives comes back to find a fan of the same type

"Bunky" by Rex Miller - A convict is trained to be an assassin by reading a radio jock

"Weird Gig" by Ray Garton - A band gets together to refind that missing spark

"Hide In Plain Sight" by John L. Byrne - A classic monster story but with a new monster ( )
