Enjoyed this very much, including the introductions to the authors and stories. I’ve met some new very interesting characters and authors I've added to my list of reads. Only wish is if narrators on a couple of stories would have taken a bit more time to read each character with more distinct inflections or tone. It was sometimes hard to tell who was speaking in fast interactions... but with good stories it wasn't too much of a chore to re-listen to catch it.

Great from start to finish. Innovative use of well-known with not-so-well-known characters. Highly enjoyable.
