This is a stellar collection of stories that really captures the sense of the world of Mage. My favorite stories at this point are Well Played and A Firm Place To Stand. The quality of the other stories is varied and while I haven't loved every piece it's a far more engaging view of the world than I've seen in the other RPG fiction I've read. It's also an excellent lens into a narrative setting that can be hard to fully grasp just from the gaming books, including some amazing takes on potential avatar relationships.
