In this dark and gritty collection—featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman—nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil.. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what makes it so easy to cross the line. In #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher’s Cold Case, Molly Carpenter—Harry Dresden’s apprentice-turned-Winter Lady—must collect a tribute from a remote Fae colony and discovers that even if you’re a good girl, sometimes you have to be bad... New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire’s Sleepover finds half-succubus Elsie Harrington kidnapped by a group of desperate teenage boys. Not for anything “weird.” They just need her to rescue a little girl from the boogeyman. No biggie. In New York Times bestselling Kevin J. Anderson’s Eye of Newt, Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble’s latest client is a panicky lizard missing an eye who thinks someone wants him dead. But the truth is that someone only wants him for a very special dinner... And New York Times bestselling author Rob Thurman’s infernally heroic Caliban Leandros takes a trip down memory lane as he deals wih some overdue—and nightmarish—vengeance involving some quite nasty Impossible Monsters.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Anderson's skill in delivering taut action scenes and creating well-rounded human and alien characters adds depth and variety to a series opener that belongs in most SF collections. Library Journal
Thurman continues to deliver strong tales of dark urban fantasy. SFRevu
The plot is strong, the characterization is terrific, the tragedies hurt...and McGuire's usual beautiful writing and dark humor are present and accounted for. This has become one of my favorite urban fantasy series. Fantasy Literature
Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe. Entertainment Weekly
Butcher is the dean of contemporary urban fantasy. Booklist
“The award-winning Julia Whelan and Emily Rankin bring a youthful assuredness and brightness to this stellar collection of eleven urban fantasy tales. The pair lead a talented group of narrators into an edgy, gray other world of demons, healers, and zombies. These are not your grandpa’s nineteenth-century ‘castle-on-a-hill’ horror stories. In these, a half-succubus comes to the rescue at the local mall. A group of fairies must somehow pay tribute to the Lady of Winter. A demon visits an evil influence from his past. There’s a just-around-corner closeness and humor in each story, and the narrators deftly bring that intimacy and ease to their readings.” AudioFile
