Songs of Love & Death
I can’t resist an anthology, especially one packed with new stories. Songs of Love & Death fits the bill perfectly. Edited by George RR Martin and Gardner Dozois, you can be sure of the quality, as well. This anthology includes fiction by Peter S Beagle, Jim Butcher, Neil Gaiman, Robin Hobb, Tanith Lee, Melinda M Snodgrass, Lisa Tuttle and many others – 17 stories in all.
According to the blurb, this book explores “the borderlands of their [the writers’] genres with tales of ill-fated love. From zombie-infested woods to faery-haunted fields, from high fantasy to a galaxy-spanning empire … these are stories of lovers who must struggle against the forces of magic and fate.”
Songs of Love & Death is published by Gallery Books ($26.00).
