I have a crippling weakness for anthologies, in particular the Firebirds ones. I always love the wide mix of authors, genres, and styles you find in these ones. You get stories about dragons and magic and heroes in the unlikeliest places right next to ones about WWII pilots. (Although I consider my self more of a fantasy fan that one about WWII pilots was one of my favorites in the whole book.) The wide range of the stories’ worlds and the lengths makes it a seemingly quick read but incredibly satisfying to sit down and read. Each story weaves its own special story and makes me want to find the rest of each author’s work and read it all.
