I have yet to read any of these yet and was wondering what other's opinions on it are.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

It's a shame they don't do those any more.


My suggestion would be to find a summary of the stories available in each edition and see if there are any that particularly grab your attention, since "value" is such a personal, subjective thing -- particularly where it comes to short stories.

I realise that liking things is subjective but I was wondering everyone's else opinions on them. And reading summaries of the stories hardly conveys if they are anygood or well written or in fact enjoyable in anyway. So did you like any of them if so which ones?

It just depends on the story.  I thought some were very good and some weren't good at all.  I'm not a big short story person because it doesn't give time to really develop something, but I think it's worth the time.

The situation with "anthologies" is that they can have a widely varying quality. So i used to peruse them at the bookstore. You can buy them for a good price online.

If I come across them at Half-Price for a $1 I'll probably check them out at least that way I wouldn't be out much if I didn't care for them.
