Antoher anthology to look for

As I previously said there are already two appetizing anthologies on my wishing list with two very impressive line-ups in their table of contents. But here comes a third, “Swords and Dark Magic: The New Swords and Sorcery” edited by Lou Anders and Jonathan Strahan and which will be released on June 2010 by Harper Eos, with an equal impressive line-up, announced by the editors Lou Anders and Jonathan Strahan:

- "Introduction: Check Your Dark Lord at the Door" by Lou Anders & Jonathan Strahan
- "Goats of Glory" by Steven Erikson
- "Tides Elba: A Tale of the Black Company" by Glen Cook
- "Bloodsport" by Gene Wolfe
- "The Singing Spear" by James Enge
- "A Wizard of Wiscezan" by C.J. Cherryh
- "A Rich Full Week" by K. J. Parker
- "A Suitable Present for a Sorcerous Puppet" by Garth Nix
- "Red Pearls: An Elric Story" by Michael Moorcock
- "The Deification of Dal Bamore" by Tim Lebbon
- "Dark Times at the Midnight Market" by Robert Silverberg
- "The Undefiled" by Greg Keyes
- "Hew the Tint Master" by Michael Shea
- "In the Stacks" by Scott Lynch
- "Two Lions, A Witch, and the War-Robe" by Tanith Lee
- "The Sea Troll's Daughter" by Caitlin R Kiernan
- "Thieves of Daring" by Bill Willingham
- "The Fool Jobs" by Joe Abercrombie

The anthology will have also a limited edition published by Subterranean Press. I am looking forward to see the cover artworks for the two editions and to grab a copy for myself when the time comes.

I'm beginning to love anthologies for the multiple stories they contain. It's very nice to read a collection of different stories from a variety of authors I might not have had an opportunity to see.

Barbara, the anthologies offer nice ways to see familiar authors at work and to discover new ones. I love them for these :)

Normally I don't read anthologies. But the one is a must have!

I like to read anthologies, although not as much as novels. And this one certainly looks like a must have :)

Definitely a 'must-have'!

I already put money aside for it :)
