gave me some new authors to try out, but when i went to read their regular books they were way too long for me which must be why i had never read anything by them. but i liked the short stories of quite a few in this collection. ( )

For the most part I really enjoyed these stories. It was a nice way to visit these famous authors all at once. Some of the stories were great and some I skipped over. My favorite (and this can't be a real surprise to anyone) is the story by the late great Terry Pratchett called Discworld: The Sea and Little Fishes. It features the delightful character, Granny Weatherwax. Always considered to be very touchy and grumpy, she is challenged to be nice for a change. Unfortunately, everyone thinks she is up to something since she can't possibly be nice.
