Nineteen short stories cover a variety of genres, including horror, science fiction, and fantasy. The title story is set in the Old Kingdom, which will be familiar to Nix's listeners, with the rest of the stories taking place in various times and settings. To accommodate such a diverse group of stories, this audiobook has 10 narrators, with each narrator delivering a complete story. The arrangement allows each narrator to set the tone of his or her story. Every narration features a unique voice and is performed with accents that fit the particular work. For example, the witches, vampires, and cadets of The Worshipful Company of the Greenwash & Field Market Bridge are all given voices that fit their characters. Each narrator is a good fit for the stories he or she delivers, and the totality of the narration results in a captivating collection.
