I love the anthologies edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner. I have read all of them. This is the newest one and I loved it too... here is the goodreads description:
Wow that was a long description! Anyways... I adore anthologies. I like to be able to just sit down sometimes and finish a story in one hour. (One of the reasons I love King, he writes short story books all the time). I also love to be introduced to new authors. This book had some amazing stories. One complaint I have this time around is a few of them 5 or 6 were stories that ended up in the air. So it was up to our imagination. While I don't mind these types of stories I prefer the short stories I read to end in a pretty bow.
I noticed on the goodreads reviews that most people it would seem didn't read the whole book and only read the short story called Magic Tests by Ilona Andrews. Apparently this is a popular series! For real... go looks at the reviews.. Magic Tests is the story everyone is talking about. While I did think the story was good I didn't think it was the best one in the book.
Personally I thought the best short story in this book was called Ifhigenia in Aulis by Mike Carey. OH WOW!!! This story was put together so well I still can't believe it was a short story. It is about some children who are put in a odd school guarded by military. Turns out that these are children born of woman who were pregnant when they turned into zombies. So they have both human and zombie traits. I wish this was a whole book!!!
I would recommend all the anthologies Harris and Kelner edits. They are usually good and usually themed pretty fun too. Here is the other anthology I have reviewed (though I have read them all)
Home Improvement: Undead Edition
