Stories were OK, some disappointing. Many were related to current series/characters by their authors. Since I'm unfamiliar with all of them except the Charlaine Harris 'world', they didn't do much for me. One good one was a standalone by Faith Hunter, will be checking to see if there will be a series [hopefully:] spinning off of this character.
ETA: The Patricia Briggs story is the backstory to a couple we'll meet extensively later, in the 2nd Alpha & Omega book [b:Hunting Ground|8130498|Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega, Book 2)|Patricia Briggs|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51BhNLjf52L._SL75_.jpg|5360280]
