ALL-NEW TALES OF UNUSUAL ATHLETICS BY JAN BURKE * DANA CAMERON * ADAM-TROY CASTRO * BRENDAN DuBOIS * CHARLAINE HARRIS * TONI L. P. KELNER * CAITLIN KITTREDGE * WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER * ELLEN KUSHNER * MERCEDES LACKEY * JOE R. LANSDALE * LAURA LIPPMAN * SEANAN McGUIRE * BRANDON SANDERSON * SCOTT SIGLER

Welcome to the wide world of paranormal pastimes, where striking out might strike you dead. Editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner are your announcers for this all-new story collection of the most peculiar plays ever made…

 

Sports fans live and die by their teams successes and failures—though not literally. But these fourteen authors have written spirited—in more ways than one—new tales of killer competitions that would make even the most die-hard players ask to be benched.

 

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harriss “The Blue Hereafter,” Manfred Bernardo learns about softball from a certain blond barmaid in Louisiana.

 

Life-and-death stakes make the competition get serious in New York Times bestseller William Kent Kruegers “Hide and Seek.”

 

New York Times bestselling author Mercedes Lackeys “False Knight on the Road” features a high-stakes drag race on a foggy mountain road between a clever young bootlegger and a mysterious stranger.

 

In New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippmans “Ice,” a young girl learns the true story behind a bit of neighborhood folklore.

 

New York Times bestseller Seanan McGuire presents “Jammed,” in which a chimera loose during the Roller Derby makes it anyones guess as to who will still be skating by the time the buzzer sounds.

 

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sandersons “Dreamer,” a game of cops and robbers is a new challenge when the players are able to switch bodies at will.

 

And New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler follows ghost stomper Hunter Hunterson as he investigates a haunted, never-ending baseball game in “The Case of the Haunted Safeway.”

 

These and eight more supernatural sporting stories are guaranteed to have you rooting for the home team…or else…
