Went back and re-read this after watching the Netflix series. I think I enjoyed it more this time as watching the show helps to clarify a few things in the story.

As you might expect from an anthology of short stories I found this a bit hit and miss. I'll admit some of the stories I just plain didn't get. There are some excellent tales in here though. The ones that really stood out for me were the Doctor Who adventure, the story featuring Shadow Moon from Gaiman's American Gods, and the 12 stories based around the months of the year.
