Includes short fiction from previous compilations including:
“Undead in the Garden of Good & Evil” (v.2.5 - originally released in Dates from Hell)
“Dirty Magic” (v.4.5 - originally released in Hotter Than Hell)
“Two Ghosts for Sister Rachel” (v.5.5 - originally released in Holidays are Hell)
“The Bespelled” (v.6.1 - originally released in Demons: Encounters with the Devil and His Minions, Fallen Angels, and the Possessed)
“Ley Line Drifter” (v.7.5 - originally released in Unbound)

Also includes supporting short fiction that should be read after the novels mentioned:
“The Bridges of Eden Park” (supports For a Few Demons More)
"Million Dollar Baby" (supports Pale Demon)

And then there are stand alone short fiction works that aren't related to The Hollows series:
"Pet Shop Boys"
"Temson Estates"
"Spider's Silk"

So it looks like the only short story that might contain spoilers is "Million Dollar Baby", but I doubt it since that event takes place in Pale Demon (#9).(less)

And so


And now for the actual review:

A little bit of old, a little bit of new

Even being the Hollows snob that I am, I admit a couple of stories have slipped through the cracks for me over the years. That's why I was quite pleased to hear that the stories would finally be included in an anthology! I'll be honest and say that when I opened it I immediately skipped to "Million Dollar Baby", the story centering on Trent and Jenks's elf que

Into the Woods: Tales from the Hollows and Beyond (The Hollows #10.1) by Kim Harrison is not just
another great book in the series but it has special insights. This book has answers to questions fans have been wanting to know throughout the series. These are short to long stories about events that happened on the side that the author is kind enough to fill us in on now. Awesome is the best way to say it! I love hearing these side stories that bring a fullness to the whole world she has created.
Some pretty good shorts in this one that fell outside the Hollows department.
Surprisingly, or maybe not, those were the ones I enjoyed the most. Exception made to the last short: damn, the thing was boring! Also, I had no idea of what I was reading...
Besides that, its official, I've lost my patience to Kim Harrison vampires. From Ivy to Kitten blood suckers _ ugh, and double ugh, leave the poor animals alone! _ I've had all I could take.

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories by Kim Harrison. I had read more than half of them already in previously released books. But the anthology included one all new Hollows short story and four stories outside of the Hollows world.

Ever wonder what Ivy was like before she met Rachel? We get a little peek in this short story. It’s set a couple of years before the events in Dead Witch Walking. Ivy has bee
Into the Woods is a collection of short stories from Kim Harrison’s Hollows series. The author has included four new stories from outside this world as well. The first six stories have been published before, either in anthologies or as bonus material at the back of mass market paperbacks. The author adds a note at the beginning of each story providing background to the story and where it was originally published.

In rating these stories, I just couldn’t help myself. I am a hopeless fan girl of t

This is a great book for The Hollows fans to have all these anthologies brought together into one book especially if you've never wanted to spend money buying all those separate books or if you've just happened to miss a couple ~ like me! And if you're not a Hollows fan, there are four stories at the end that are not related to the series that you might find interesting.

The first six stories are old Hollows anthos:

I actually finished this last week, but haven't had the time or the dedication to give it a proper review until now. Part of the reason, honestly, is this CHAIR! My computer chair broke so I'm using an armless one that leaves no support for my elbows when I type. Apparently I have some wimpy ass elbows because I can't type long without my arms really bugging me now.

Cannot. WAIT. To. Get. Another. Chair.

This is the story of how Ceri came to be Al's familiar.

The knowledge of who owed him and what was worth a lot in the demon's world, and familiars were known for their loose tongues until you cut them out. It was a practice Algaliarept frowned upon. Most of his brethren were bloody plebeians. Removing a familiar's tongue completely ruined the nuances of their pleas for mercy.

AL, ladies and gentleman.

But appreciation for the finer nuances of pleading asid

This was very short, only 35 minutes in audio, but that did not stop it from being a moving and riveting story.

It tells the story of how Ceri came to be Al's familiar. In an even more interesting twist this tale was told from Al's perspective. It was both fascinating and horrifying to read how Al manipulated Ceri into making the mistake he needed to capture her.

It's a reminder, because I did need one, that Al is a Demon!.

5 stars for the Hollows stories, I loved them! The others ranged from 3 to 4.5 stars.
