Read from January 12 to 14, 2011

This is an sff/romance anthology, with a contributor list definitely a cut above the average. (Editor Martin has the connections!) My favorites were the entries from Tanith Lee, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Peter S. Beagle and Neil Gaiman (who contributes an actual story, rather than the short poem he usually gives anthologies!) - but many of the others were very good as well. Recommended.

1. "Love Hurts" by Jim Butcher [a Harry Dresden story]
2. "The Marrying Maid" by Jo Beverly
3. "Rooftops" by Carrie Vaughn
4. "Hurt Me" by M.L.N. Hanover
5. "Demon Lover" by Cecelia Holland
6. "The Wayfarer's Advice" by Melinda M. Snodgrass [an Imperials story]
7. "Blue Boots" by Robin Hobb
8. "The Thing About Cassandra" by Neil Gaiman
9. "After the Blood" by Marjorie M. Liu
10. "You and You Alone" by Jacqueline Carey [a Kushiel story]
