    Absolutely brilliant

    Baker’s open comments are something that everyone should read or hear. As a PhD scientist and engineering and lover of all sci-fi and fantasy I have never heard such a more powerful opening as this book. The case for grim dark and the rules for story tell are powerfully explained I was left with my jaw on the floor.

    I will be recommending this series for the the next ten years if not more. This is a classical exposition on the moral dilemma we call humanity in a fun dark, intellectual, brilliant, set of stories that we as lover of fantasy should read. This will open your mind and blur the boundary of what we conceive as evil and good. You will relate and hate that you relate to the characters given because it is who we are in nature.

    I want to thank all the authors who made this brilliant piece of work. This is true grimdark at its finest. Real people real feelings real actions real story telling. They don’t not shy away from the true good and evil in the human soul.

    Please enjoy this exciting journey into the dark you will not regret it!

    hit or miss

    I can't say that this is my favorite way to listen to audio books as a collection of short stories, but some of these stories were really good and it was unfortunate that they ended the way that they did because I'd like to hear more. then again some others were so dull that I unintentionally spaced out...

    Are you one who wants the bad guy to win sometimes

    I have always been one to occasionally want to see the story differently than the author wants you to. I always want the hero to win and the villain to lose. Sometimes the villain is the hero.
    If any of the above describes you: this was made for you. I won’t get into plots and spoilers, but this group of short stories will satisfy your dark side. I won’t say all of the stories are 5 star but production, narration, and overall storylines are well worth the five star rating. Stories told from the dark side, and making the villains relatable what more can you ask for. I will be listening to these short stories more than once. Love it.
    This audiobook was provided by the publisher, author(s), or narrator, for an honest review.

    Evil is a Matter of Perspective

    This is an interesting collection of stories told from the villain’s point of view. Each story brings the listener into a new and engaging places. As with most collections there were some that I enjoyed more than others. This book has numerous worlds and characters that will grab your attention. Each story brings you into another world and adventure. I enjoyed the idea behind these stories, and it was interesting to see these kinds of stories told from the villain’s viewpoint. This is a nice way to try out the various authors works, and I have found a few that I will be looking for more from. Narrator Greg Patmore does a good job of bringing these stories to life and pulling the listener in.

    I received this audiobook at my request, and I voluntarily wrote a review.

    This is a failure that had so much promise!

    First I will admit that I haven't finished this anthology. I really wanted to enjoy this but the reader/narrator does such a terrible job combined with the excerpts being poorly chosen and disorganized that this book is just no good.

    I enjoy the genre featured in this anthology and I have read and enjoyed many of the authors featured in it, however the execution is terrible. Each selected excerpt or chapter from each selected piece does not stand alone so they hang out in space with no anchor and are confusing to listen to. They don't really tie in the concept represent by the books description.

    Pair the disjointed chapters with really poor reading and the chapters are completely confusing or uninteresting. Greg Patmore's cadence and inflections are destructive to story and very difficult to listen to. I have listened to other audiobook versions of a few of the books featured in this anthology read by much better narrators the scenes and chapters were completely different when read by a more skilled narrator.

    Save your money or your credit. This anthology is a disaster and complete waste.

    Expert Story-Crafting

    Our host of talented authors bring us tales of from worlds where the morality of our leading women and men is anything but a simple binary, and in this way reminds of us home more than the fantasy of the genre's forebears, as brilliantly mused in the forward. If complexity keeps you turning the page, you've arrived at your destination.

    the performances were good...

    but the stories varied wildly. the first I almost returned the book over it was too twisted and dark.
    A couple were amusing and several had surprise twists to the end but, no, I cannot recommend this book.

    Pretty good and some were even better.

    The stories were good in this unconventionally dark but intriguing collection and a few were remarkable! The narrator and producer surprised me a few times on how brilliant his range was. The ones that really stood out helped make this shadowed narrative as a whole show that even the darkest ideals can be a matter of perspective.
