December Books 7) Short Trips [20]: Destination Prague, edited by Steven Savile

A collection of short stories featuring the first eight Doctors, all set in Prague. Like some of the other Short Trips collections I found the clunkers more memorable than the better stories - there's a dire First Doctor / Ian tale, for instance - but I'll also note that the stories I found best tended to be those by authors I had already heard of, though not usually as Doctor Who writers: Stephen Dedman, Keith DeCandido, Mary Robinette Kowal, Gary Braunbeck and Lucy Snyder, and a couple of others. I think I'll start going through the Short Trips anthologies more systematically when I have exhausted my in-house stocks, but I can see that the series had its weaknesses as well as its strengths.
