Award-winning, bestselling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he’s one of the hottest stars in literature today with “The Thing About Cassandra,” a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see. International blockbuster bestselling author Diana Gabaldon sends a World War II RAF pilot through a stone circle to the time of her Outlander series in “A Leaf on the Winds of All Hallows.” Torn from all he knows, Jerry MacKenzie determinedly survives hardship and danger, intent on his goal of returning home to his wife and baby — no matter the cost. New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher presents “Love Hurts,” in which Harry Dresden takes on one of his deadliest adversaries and in the process is forced to confront the secret desires of his own heart. Just the smallest sampling promises unearthly delights, but look also for stories by New York Times bestselling romance authors Jo Beverley and Mary Jo Putney, and by such legends of the fantasy genre as Peter S. Beagle and Tanith Lee, as well as many other popular and beloved writers, including Marjorie M. Liu, Jacqueline Carey, Carrie Vaughn, and Robin Hobb. This exquisite anthology, crafted by the peerless editing team of George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, is sure to leave you under its spell. Download and start listening now!

    " Listened to a selection of stories from this one, which I mainly purchased for the Gabaldon story. Loved her story!!! The others were pretty good too. Will likely come back to finish the rest later :) "

    " I enjoyed most of the stories in this anthology. I skipped two because they were sci-fi and I just couldn't get into them. I loved Jim Butcher's and Diana Gabaldon's stories! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Arindam | 9/23/2011

    " A better than average collection of semi-romantic, dark fantasy novellas. Barring a few, others were a drag and not really up to the mark "

    " Neat compilation of short stories by several authors I love and several authors I've never heard of. I used it to search for new fantasy authors to try out. "

In the mid ’90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he’s allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
