I enjoyed this book and the range of settings, characters, and 'voices' (different writers and styles) in this book. It was disappointing that all of the stories are set in the US even though at least one author was Canadian - why do some Americans think the only stories worth telling are theirs? Aside from that factor, I did enjoy the read and will look up the next book in this series.

This book is made up 15 short stories that are inspired by events and people throughout history. Some of the stories were more exciting than the others, but there was a few good ones among them. Still a good read for those who like historical fiction.
