Lovecraft’s Monsters edited by Ellen Datlow

2 April 2014 Natassia 0

H.P Lovecraft’s epic monsters come to new life in the anthology Lovecraft’s Monsters. With a wide range of popular and fairly unknown authors, the fare ranges from entertaining to downright boring. Even taking Lovecraft’s great talent out of the equation, many stories simply under-utilize the great beasts which should be […]

NSingh-Wild Invitation

Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh

16 March 2013 Courtney 0

Wild Invitation is the perfect example of why I read Nalini Singh. With only four short stories, Singh is able to make me lose touch with reality and completely immerse myself in her Psy-Changling world. These four stories are placed in between the full length novels and give us a […]

Moscow but Dreaming by Ekaterina Sedia

26 January 2013 Courtney 0

I have never read anything by Ekaterina Sedia and I am kicking myself for it. Her anthology Moscow but Dreaming is everything I look for in a book. Even though she only has a few pages to introduce the characters, setting and plot, I always felt connected. Every story just […]

The Halloween themed anthology Entangled contains novellas by authors I know and love, and by authors I have yet to try. A few years ago, I tried reading a book by Nancy Haddock but just couldn’t get into it. So I was really surprised when I was completely sucked into her novella, Medium Rare, […]

The Halloween themed anthology Entangled contains novellas by authors I know and love, and by authors I have yet to try. Edie Ramer was one of those new -to-me authors, but after reading The Fat Cat, Ramer’s contribution to the anthology, she has become one of those authors that I love. In a […]

Halloween Frost by Jennifer Estep

The Halloween themed anthology Entangled contains novellas by authors I know and love, and by authors I have yet to try. I already love Jennifer Estep and was seriously excited to see that her contribution, Halloween Frost, was set in her Mythos Academy series – quite possibly my favorite series of hers. It’s Halloween at […]

Chicks Kick Butt anthology

3 October 2011 Nicole 0

I love anthologies for the simple reason they allow you to a) find new authors and b) allow an author to explore secondary characters’ stories that us readers tend to beg for *G*.  Chicks Kick Butt was no exception.  There are something like 12+ authors who wrote for this particular anthology, […]

The Dragon Book (Anthology)

22 September 2011 Casey 2

Dragon lovers rejoice! The Dragon Book is full of amazing, unique tales about, you guessed it, dragons. Whether portrayed as fire-breathing reptilian beasts at war with humanity or as noble creatures capable of speech and mystically bonded to the warriors who ride them, dragons have been found in nearly every […]

Red Run by Kami Garcia

7 September 2011 Jackie 0

I love anthologies, especially since that’s how I generally find new authors to read. It’s also a great way to try several authors in a genre one doesn’t typically gravitate towards. For me, I’m not a big young adult fan, so I don’t go looking in the young adult section […]
