    1. I loved Terry Pratchett and still love his work. I love satire and lighthearted humor in novels when it can be done especially in the fantasy genre. I was up in Northern Virginia for work and stopped by a local computer store to grab some materials for an installation job, and I bumped into an employee who was an author! I can't remember his name but he told me about the book and that it was charity and that he had a part in making it. I had my Kindle paperwhite, bought it then and there.I loved [...]


    2. Tiny Turtles! Dragon-blooded girls! Werewolves in warehouses (werehouses?)! Thieves and magicians and boogeymen, oh, my!This collection puts together - for an excellent cause (Alzheimer's research) - an eclectic mix from the minds of authors who are overdue for discovery and wider distribution. Fun, touching, horrific, and lyrical, this is an imaginative read. Plus the proceeds go for a good cause!


    3. Sir Terry would be proud! This colorful collection written by ardent fans of a legendary author for a VERY worthy cause is a soaring testament to the profound impact a good storyteller has. I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of works from very talented authors, ranging in taste from endearing to disturbing; from light fantasy fun to heart-wrenching scenes that not only seek to do justice to the literary master who inspired them all, but to also shed light on a horrible disease and offers unique pe [...]


    4. The GoodThe poems and short stories within this collection were an excellent representation of various styles and authors new to me. It was wonderful to read various stories in various genres.The BadNot really bad, but some of the short stories made me want to read more, and there wasn't more to read. They all end nicely and tie up their storylines, but I wanted more from the worlds they presented.The ReviewI can't wait to read more from the authors included in this collection. Some of them have [...]


    5. Written to honour the late Sir Terry Prathcett and to help raise money towards the fight against Alzehimer's disease, this anthology collects a nice range of short stories and poems. Some are written with the brilliant mind behind the Discworld's sense of humour in mind, others shine a very real light on the disease that he and so many others have fought. The book also helps shine a light on several authors you might not have otherwise read. All of these things combine to provide a wonderful boo [...]


    6. this was such a fun treat of a book. so many stories and varied pieces for the price of one thing. Every bit of this was enjoyable from mr. cejka's works, suttons, barber, everyone. It was all over the place in the best way. It's wonderful to see so many stories from different voices. I loved the wizard story, the poems, everything.This was just a bundle of talented voices and its for charity. why not? five stars!
