Disappointing. You have to have read Gaimen's Sandman series I guess to figure out who the characters are in these stories.

A mixed bag, to be honest. There were some real winners, like Robert Rodi's "An Extra Smidgen of Eternity" and Delia Sherman's "The Witch's Heart". It was nice to see Susannah Clarke's story as well; I started reading her work because Neil Gaiman had said in an interview that she was an author he enjoyed. I didn't care for Lawrence Schimel's "Endless Sestina", but I don't, as a rule, like a lot of poetry. According to wikipedia, several other authors (including Harlan Ellison, Jane Yolen, Charles de Lint, Martha Soukup, Karawynn Long, and Michael Berry) had originally signed up to contribute to the anthology, but dropped out due to some confusion between the contracts DC Vertigo was giving people, and what the anthology's editors had originally promised them. Pity, I would have loved to have seen what Yolen and de Lint would have done with Morpheus. (This also explains Gaiman's dedication page in the edition I read, apologizing to the above writers.)

It's kind of weird reading the stories minus the graphic side of it, but still pretty interesting. Some stories were better than others, but I had to read it since it was part of the Sandman. ♥
