Like most of these anthologies: read some, skimmed some, skipped some. Jim Butcher's story was good - nice to get something finally from the POV of occasional Dresden Files villain/ally John Marcone, who is probably one of the most complex and interesting characters in the series. The Carrie Vaughn story was also a standout for me, about a dragonslayer getting ready to retire and training her church-appointed replacement. The setup for Shannon Butcher's story had me interested, but the end fell a little flat for me. I also enjoyed the story by P.N. Elrod about a vampire PI in a noir style tale of gangsters and guns. Most of the rest I had either already red or couldn't really get into.
