Do you prefer to read collections that are all of works by the same author? Or collections by different writers? Consistency or variety?
I read both just as happily. I just have different expectations for them. In the same author, I’ll either already enjoy the author’s work and want more or he or she is someone recommended to me and I look forward to sampling their work. With different authors, I’m interested in the theme of the collection and different interpretations of it.
Recently I’ve really enjoyed the Fiction River short story collections.
