    I found thus collection really disappointing, feeling that only a few of the anthologised pieces lived up to the great title - rest appeared banal or poorly written. Surprising in context of many other Little anthologies which I'd found to be well edited and enjoyable? Most frustrating part was the atrocious copyediting, which made it very difficult to stay immersed in most of the tales. Several characters' names changed spelling arbitrarily throughout their stories, one author persistently referred to an orrery as "an astronomy" (why write outside your time period if you don't even bother to Google the correct vocabulary?), and various other typos were rife throughout. Hopefully the few good stories will be re-anthologised elsewhere at some point so they get a second chance in a better setting...
