I'm enjoying this, and learning a lot, even though many of the articles/essays are much too short. I feel as if the editors tried to cram too much in.
At the moment I'm in the middle of the interview with Barbara Michaels/Elizabeth Peters, which I was really looking forward to. Sadly, I've come to the conclusion that the interviews are the weakest part of the collection.
Overall, my impression is that no one took this project seriously enough to do a really good job of it. Everything feels rushed and superficial.
