I was disappointed with Diana Gabaldon's contribution. While it had the Scottish setting of "Outlander," and a brief glimpse of Jamie Fraser, it had the same failings as most short stories. There wasn't enough of it.
If you enjoy the authors listed here, and you don't get irritated at the short story format, go for it. While I have not finished all of the stories, most of the ones I have read were worthwhile.
I really am a huge fan of all of these people. The only disappointment was the Gabaldon one - of all the people Cotton had to run into in Scotland, Geillis was one of the last people I wanted him to meet. He did manage that meeting very well but she’s my least favorite person in the Outlander saga and I didn’t want her to show up. The story had an excellent ending, though. I did enjoy every short story in this book and that is unusual as there are usually one or two not worth the read. Thanks for a great collaboration between great authors, this was a good read.
My only wish is that I could count them each separately so they would really speed me toward my reading challenge goal in Goodreads! LOL!
I avoid themes such as Vampires,Ghosts etc,Not my interests.
As a personal preference I enjoy bonding with themes and characters through a reasonably
Short stories ends way too soon leaving me with frustrations rather than enjoyment.
Admittedly Lee Child being featured drew me in but there wsn't enough of him.
I did finish the book but was glad when I turned the last page.
In fairness there a couple of other authors that I enjoyed..

Match Up is an assortment of stories, each story collaberated on by 2 different authors per story. Because the stories are short, some of them felt disjointed in order to reach an early conclusion. There was insufficient description of the characters and some of the stories lacked background. I found the format unappealing and much prefer a full length novel.
