save the best for last

Songs of Love and Death by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, eds.
Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
Genre: anthology
Challenge: 100 Book Challenge 2011
Review: The problem with reading collections of short stories by many different authors is that there's likely to be a lot of inconsistency. Such was definitely the case here. Some of the stories were absolute dreck, some were ok, some were actually pretty good, and at least one was excellent. Unfortunately, the excellent one was the last one in the book, and it was only barely worth it to read all the stories that came before it to get to that one.
