FYI - I funded the kickstarter that included this book.
Any collection of stories is going to be a mixed bag that will differ from reader to reader. Overall the majority of the stories were good. Not great, but a little above okay. There were three stand-outs.
1. "Rest in Peace" by Seann Macguire - this rift on the idea of a missing ship is wonderful. It's the right mixture of realism and sea legend. Really good ending.
2. "Go With the Flow" by Esther Friesner - Friesner is always best when playing with tropes.
3. "Son of Blob" by Jeffery J Mariottie - real good story with squid.
