High quality fluff, exactly what I wanted. A rare anthology with not a dud in the lot, by authors who are mostly auto-buys for me. Some English, some American, some dabbling in a wee bit of angst, all enjoyable. If I had to pick a favorite, it might be JL Merrow's, but only if I had to.
I'm not a big fan of short stories as I feel a lot is skipped over. Some stories I liked a lot though and wished they were longer. The ones I did like were perfect summer lovin' niblets full of sunshine and lollipops.
I am not a big fan of the anthology. But, this is an exception to my rule. Each of the stories is fresh and engaging, without feeling like a beach movie gone bad. HIghly recommend.
