This collection of short stories has you rooting for the not-so-bad-guy. The not so honest scoundrel is the hero of all these stories. What attracted me to this collection was two specific authors; Neil Gaiman & George RR Martin, but with 21 different stories from 21 different authors, you may find a new favorite. With the audiobook you get a variety of voice actors bringing you the stories, creating that collected stories feel.
