Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

IN this star-studded cross-genre anthology, seventeen of the greatest modern authors of fantasy, science fiction, and romance explore the borderlands of their genres with brand-new tales of ill-fated love. From zombie-infested woods in a postapocalyptic America to faery-haunted rural fields in eighteenth- century England, from the kingdoms of high fantasy to the alien world of a galaxy-spanning empire, these are stories of lovers who must struggle against the forces of magic and fate.

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.

I was asked once how long should we continue loving someone who would never be ours. Honestly, I do not know, yet, I don't remember answering it. I just stood there, caught up in the hysteria of realization, of the lack of sense, of the ambiguity of reasoning. Maybe it was meant to be rhetorical, a question that thrives not for answers but for meaning. To borne the sensibilities of unrequited love, of the heartaches we lived through, of the jokes that Fate plays on us. We all have those tragedies. And after reading this "heart-breaking-in-sort-of -beautiful-and-idyllic-way" anthology put together by George R. R. Martin, you will realize you are not alone, and your story, not the only one with a "not-so-happily-ever-after" ending. The book is a soulful rendition of a love song and a death wish, with the varying notes of unrequited love and tragedy, all composed by the magic hands of Fate. Most stories will pinch your hearts once in a while; some will touch your hearts and leave their little finger marks on them. Each story in this magnificent anthology is a mirror of our destinies, written by authors who have been striving to keep the sanity and imagination of this world in counterbalance. And the characters, they are us.
