    Like most short story collections it's kind of a hit or miss, the audiobook has a variety of readers as well so some are great while one or two are annoying. But where else will you find Walt Witman, Ursula K LeGuin, Lewis Carol, and the Book of Revelations in one place?

    Big fan of Stefan's. There are some really great stories here--well worth the time. The commentary at the end about Edgar Allen Poe was especially captivating. Big fan of Stefan's.
