    I picked this up for Isaac Asimov s story Northwestward and it unfortunately was completely stupid It references Batman but not really in a meaningful way And as a mystery story goes, it had the least interesting twist, after a really borin...

    This is an anthology by the king of genre anthologies, Martin H Greenberg, as such some of the stories are quite good, others are so so, and one was really pointless This collection of fourteen stories has a disappointing line up of authors.I also found this book in a box of old paperbacks of mine and it dates from 1989, and man does it show Computers built with vacuum tubes and operated with punch cards It s unfamthomable And Batman s tech should be slightly futuristic not hopelessly o This is an anthology by the king of genre anthologies, Martin H Greenberg, as such some of the stories are quite good, others are so so, and one was really pointless This collection of fourteen stories has a disappointing line up of authors.I also found this book in a box of old paperbacks of mine and it dates from 1989, and man does it show Computers built with vacuum tubes and operated with punch cards It s unfamthomable And Batman s tech should be slightly futuristic not hopelessly out of date But it wasn t just the tech that was out of date several of these stories seemed to be based on the old 60s TV series Batman rather than the comics, and certainly not the Nolan films It ...

    This book caught my eye 14 authors from traditional publishing backgrounds tackle the subject of The Batman, including ones I was already familiar with Max Allan Collins, Stuart Kaminsky, and Isaac Asimov Unfortunately, as I read through the book, I found it to be like most anthologies some stories are excellent and really appeal to me, while others make me feel like my time would have beenproductively spent watching butterflies flutter in a meadow.Let s look at Bats, by Henry Sles This book caught my eye 14 authors from traditional publishing backgrounds tackle the subject of The Batman, including ones I was already familiar with Max Allan Collins, Stuart Kaminsky, and Isaac Asimov Unfortunately, as I read through the book, I found it to be like most anthologies some stories are excellent and really appeal to me, while others make me feel like my time would have beenproductively spent watching butterflies flutter in a meadow.Let s look at...

    Some of the stories in this collection are actually a pretty good read, but most of them are fairly sub par.Still, the collection provides an amusing enough read, if the awkward prose for some stories can be overlooked A couple of the stories feel out of place, such as Idol or Northwestward which don t help the book any.For the most part, characterization is pretty good from most of the authors Dick Grayson reads particularly reminiscent of his Animated Series self, despite these stories h Some of the stories in this collection are actually a pretty good read, but most of them are fairly sub par.Still, the collection provides an amusing e...
