Powers of Detection: Stories of Mystery & Fantasy - Donna Andrews, Anne Bishop, John Straley, Dana Stabenow, Mike Doogan, Jay Caselberg, Sharon Shinn, Charlaine Harris, Michael Armstrong, Laura Anne Gilman, Anne Perry, Simon R. Green

A rather weak anthology of short stories combining murder mystery and fantasy. The best story was the first one, Cold Spell by Donna Andrews. Andrews is a competent mystery writer, so the quality of her story came as no surprise. But the mediocrity of the other stories, despite some stellar authors’ names included in the collection, was disappointing.
