A new very interesting anthology on the horizon

These days I can’t stop wondering what George R.R. Martin wants to do to my budget. Because as I read on his journal George R.R. Martin makes another attempt on my personal account with a new anthology edited together with Gardner Dozois, “Songs of Love and Death”. I am just kidding, because I am very happy to see that after “Warriors”, the upcoming anthology edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois and due to be released by Tor Books in March, another such promising collection of stories is being made. “Songs of Love and Death” doesn’t have a publication date yet, but we can find information about the anthology and its line-up on George R.R. Martin's Not a Blog. “Songs of Love and Death” is a cross-genre anthology with stories that blend fantasy, science fiction and romance, four of these stories being linked with series of their authors, Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden, Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander and Melinda M. Snodgrass’ Imperials. And like “Warriors”, the other anthology edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois I mentioned here, this one has an all-stars line-up as well:

- Jim Butcher - "Love Hurts"
- Jo Beverly - "The Marrying Maid"
- Carrie Vaughn - "Rooftops"
- M.L.N. Hanover - "Hurt Me"
- Cecelia Holland - "Demon Lover"
- Melinda M. Snodgrass - "The Wayfarer's Advice"
- Robin Hobb - "Blue Boots"
- Neil Gaiman - "The Thing About Cassandra"
- Marjorie M. Liu - "After the Blood"
- Jacqueline Carey - "You and You Alone"
- Lisa Tuttle - "His Wolf"
- Linnea Sinclair - "CourtingTrouble"
- Mary Jo Putney - "The Demon Dancer"
- Tanith Lee - "Under/Above the Water"
- Peter S. Beagle - "Kashkia"
- Yasmine Galenorn - "Man in the Mirror"
- Diana Gabaldon - "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows"
