* based on a 1-10 scale with:  1-4, poor; 5-7, good; 8-10, very good.*

My review:
You don't have to be familiar with tarot cards to enjoy this book.  The cards are the inspiration for some really fascinating stories, and you get to meet a great variety of excellent writers in this book.

I loved all the stories.  Some I enjoyed more than others, but I liked them all. Fascinating angle for an anthology, neat idea for a theme.
