    I read an advance review copy of this book, which contained a few minor typos. Most of these stories were completely new to me, and I know some will stay with me a long time! Not even the ones I liked best! I think I've heard another story of Timon the Black, but now I feel compelled to seek out even more from my favorite authors!
