Anthologies can be a nice change of reading and a good way to be introduced to a new author. And of course, a must read for the die-hard series fans. Lets face it, we always want to know what is happening to our favorite characters. Here are a couple of fantasy suggestions, and yes, there is a Jim Butcher theme since I love his Dresden series.
My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding: This was a fun theme to read. Weddings tend to be stressful with odd problems springing up last minute in a non-paranormal world, but add a few supernatural creatures and some magic and things are sure to become even more interesting. Featuring authors such as Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Rachel Caine, L A Banks, and many more.
Naked City: This collection doesn’t really have a set theme other than being about urban fantasy, but it does have some great authors who write about our favorite characters. My personal favorite in this book is written by Melissa Marr, “Guns For the Dead”. Head back to the land of the dead and learn more about the strange city that exists between worlds created in Marr’s latest novel, Graveminder. However, I really enjoyed all of the other short stories as well. Marr’s just happen to be about the characters I was most anxious to read about. A few other authors are: Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, Melissa Marr, Holly Black, and more.
