DISGRACEFUL number of typographical errors! 3 janvier 2001
Par Krista - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Although the selection of short stories in this anthology is excellent, presenting an array of some of the best classic and contemporary pieces of the genre, the number of typographical errors are INEXCUSABLE. This is the anthology I purchased for a short fiction class this past fall, and as a class we were increasingly astounded by each additional typo we confronted. In about half of the stories we read, we encountered at least one, and in some we noticed more than one, which was really distracting. In Conan Doyle's Red Headed League, for instance, Holmes "THOUGH as much" (as opposed to thought), and on the very next page, he "only wished to ask WHO he would get to the Strand" (as opposed to how). The fact that there was a misprint in my favorite story of those that we read - James Joyce's Araby--was the last straw for me. My professor encouraged us to write or e-mail the editors and complain, and one student did, only to receive an e-mail which defended them and declared that the errors don't really alter the content or overall effect of the stories. Ironically, instead of the monetary compensation my fellow student(unsurprisingly)requested, the person she contacted offered to send her a free book on English writing and usage. We all told her she should send an e-mail back to them, telling them to keep the book because the editors obviously needed it more than her.
It really is disgraceful, though. How could the editors possibly think that stupid errors like this don't crucially alter the story's effect on the reader? This is not the case. It is distracting and irritating, and destroys the effect for me. I can't imagine that James Joyce would have agreed with the comment that errors like this don't really damage the story. Every author whose story was massacred by these editors would shudder that their works of art were destroyed by carelessness. Isn't the editor's job to make positively sure these kinds of errors are not there? It's really hard to believe. I've never EVER encountered typographical errors in books I've read for school, and very few in the ones I have found mistakes in. Certainly no more than two! Don't buy this anthology...maybe wait for the next edition-- hopefully they will proofread a little more accurately. If the editors happen to read this-- please, this is one disappointed student who doesn't want monetary compensation--I just want another book, and I want it to be perfect!

Great stories 14 octobre 2012

Got this book for my English Grad class, and it did not disappoint. It has many of the short stories that I love, and it also has a wide variety of different famous authors.
excellent. good books fast delivery 22 septembre 2014

excellent. good books fast delivery. But, I do not like what Amazon is doing to the publishing industry. As an author soon to publish a military memoir, I do not like what your doing to writers and publishers in the name of fair competition. This does not represent the best interest of artists, authors and the industry. The attorney general's office is probably looking into Amazon's practices as I speak! Change your practices , such as the secrete "Camp Fire" conferences, which made the front page of the NEW York Times. Jeff Bezos and handlers should be ashamed of themselves. Is it possible that when the list of attendees leaks out, there will be a backlash of authors who have attended.
Eh not so much 6 mai 2013
Par Jaida Chaffee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Although some of the stories were interesting the paperback edition I bought the words were tiny and each page was a couple pages in length in comparison to a regular book. Some of the review questions at the end were worthwhile however the setup of the book was not conducive to inspiring reading especially when it is required reading as opposed to comfort reading. All and all I would just rate this book as a means to an end.
HUGE anthology 29 avril 2013
Par _Pyre_ - Publié sur Amazon.com

Find interesting new authors; discover masterful old ones! I bought this as required reading for a class on short stories. The book is thick like a telephone directory and stuffed full of small-print fiction of every genre and sub-genre -- some of which you will no doubt love, others that you will certainly loath. There are also some very useful sections on writing theory, for those who plan to write their own.
