This is the second collection of short stories edited by Peter Haining. I enjoyed it very much - the stories themselves are great, but I enjoyed the brief introductory comments just as much. The editor gives us a lightning resume of the authors life and other works and the odd entertaining anecdote too. He also briefly puts the story into the context of the development of the genre.
A great way to broaden your list of "authors I buy".
I have now put the first of these books (The Wizards of Odd) on my wish list. 4 out of 5
