    2. Phew! Started in October, finally finished in July! I'm giving the collection 5 stars, even though not all of the stories were 5 star pieces, because of the sheer volume of new authors I was exposed to and the wide variety of topics and styles. Overall:28 5-star ratings, 67 4-star, 35 3-star, 15 2-star, 4 1-star, and one unrated. Not bad! Thanks, tor!1. When We Were Heroes, by Daniel Abraham - 4 stars. Made me want to know more about the Wild Cards universe, which I have not ventured into before [...]

    3. Non so quando lo finirò (o se lo farò mai).In ogni caso non riporterò qua ogni singola opinione, perché sarebbero troppe dal momento che intendo lasciare almeno due righe su ogni racconto e non ci starebbero. Le metterò su Google Docs

    4. This is a massive collection of short fiction originally published at Tor. There were maybe a dozen or so stories I didn't read, but on the whole this is a solid collection of contemporary short speculative fiction.

    5. This is a huge collection of about 150 stories that have appeared over the last five years on Tor's website, that I've been reading in dribs and drabs on my phone over the past year or so.It's hard to talk about it because there are just so many in there, I honestly can't remember in most cases if a story comes from there, or from another, smaller, short story collection I read in the intervening time. Nor, often, can I really remember many of the details. In a general sense, though, for me, per [...]

    6. Reading through this entire collection was one of the worst reading experiences I have ever had. I kept thinking that there just HAD to be some good stories in it. And there were, about five or so that I really liked and maybe 10 that were at least entertaining. But most of them were pointless, postmodern drivel that oh, might have the hero dying, or end in a state of hopelessness, or just be completely pointless or insane. Maybe I'm just not "sophisticated" enough to enjoy things like this but [...]

    7. Overall, this collection was a disappointment. There were some really good short stories such as "The Fermi Paradox is our Business Model" that deserve a five star rating, but I did not really enjoy the bulk of the stories. I recommend that anyone who is planning on reading this simply look at some of the other reviews and read only the stories that other people have mentioned as being worth reading.

    8. This took me some time to get through, and there was a real mixture. Some of the stories were complete within themselves, and others were teasers for complete novels. Like many anthologies I enjoyed some tales more than others, but because I didn't really keep track of things as I was reading it I would probably have to spend a fair bit of effort to dig through and remind myself of authors and stories I would want to read again. Oops.

    9. The collection is very up and down - I found some good, enjoyable stories, and a lot of postmodern drivel, where everyone dies or turns out to be twisted in some way. But I found a few authors I will be looking to read again.If reading through this one, be prepared to skip over stories you don't like; the good ones for me were all fairly quickly obvious, and for the most part so was the junk.

    10. Most of the stories were very good, but I don't think I ever want to tackle a collection this big, ever again.(1%)I'm starting The Stories: I've finished one story and half a novella and I'm still not up to 2%? This could take a while! —

    11. Wow. That's a LOT of stories. And only a couple of woofers in there.

    12. 150 of stories, but not all that many good ones. The vast majority where the kind where you even forget what is was about 2 minutes after you've finished reading it.

    14. A huge, almost overwhelming collection of short stories, novellas, and excerpts from some of today's best sci-fi and fantasy authors.
