This collection of short stories probably came from an assortment of collections — those lovely teaser tales that allow you to buffet-style several authors at once. They definitely would offer up a chance to get a feel for the Nightside. And that’s kind of the problem with the collection. While we get a nice bit of backstory or origin stories on a few characters for half the collection, the other half consists of John Taylor tales. And these feel like less fleshed out versions of the novels. Like the half-discarded chicken wings of an actual Nightside novel. They’re still amusing and entertaining, but some of the resolutions are even more slapdash than the usual Nightside style.
