Excellent purchase, especially since I'm Canadian and Amazon.com wouldn't let me buy The Long Way Home as an eBook! I've been wanting to get my hands on the short stories for a long time and now, finally, they're all at my fingertips. I was not disappointed, even with my expectations raised over several years of waiting. It's also a nice change of pace from the increasingly supernatural tone of the later novels, to return to Jack's roots as a simple repairman, with only his wits and the tools at hand.
A couple of the stories have already been integrated into the books, but one-shots like The Long Way Home, Interlude at Duane's and A Day in the Life more than make up for it.
