Black Wings - S. T. Joshi

3.33 for an original anthology is not too bad. Mostly your garden variety average to good stories here, with two standounts. Partridge's Lesser Demons and by far the best Barron's Broadswords. As you would expect, some rubbish like Kiernan and Smith's shopping list. Although at least the latter you could use as an insomnia cure.

Overal, solidly interesting.
