Dreamsongs 1 - George R. R. Martin

A split up version of the 'Dreamsongs' collection, first part thereof. A standout indeed, at 3.82. Martin also adds significant introductory material to illuminate the parts of his career, as well as the stories. These show you how good a short story writer he is, and thankfully he has at least gone back to it a little recently, in amidst the interminable fantasy series.

A really, really good collection.
