An all-star lineup of storytellers distinguishes this collection of 21 original tales of "scoundrels, con men, and scalawags, ne'er-do-wells, thieves, cheats, and rascals." With contributions from fantasy stalwarts such as George R.R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, and Neil Gaiman as well as acclaimed writers in other genres, including thriller author Gillian Flynn, mystery writer Steven Saylor, and science fiction master Connie Willis, each story introduces the not-so-good guys and gals we all secretly root for.

There are some extremely fun stories in here. Lots of sci-fi and fantasy but other set in a more contemporary sort of setting. I really enjoyed the one narrated by Gwendolyn Cristie (Breinne of Tarth from game of thrones). If you are fond of snarky and clever characters definitely check this out. You will not be disappointed.
