Another Monkey Off My Back

ape
Gardner Dozois and I have delivered SONGS OF LOVE AND DEATH: Tales of Star-Crossed Love to our editor at Pocket Books.

SONGS OF LOVE AND DEATH is another of our crossgenre anthologies, this one featuring stories that blend fantasy, science fiction, and romance. (I hear you jeering. Pfui. Those of you who know my work only from A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE may not be aware that I was once considered the most romantic science fiction writer of the 70s, back when I was doing my Thousand Worlds stuff).

We're got another terrific lineup. Our table of contents:

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"

The Butcher is a Harry Dresden story, the Carey tells a long-awaited tale from her Kushiel series, the Gabaldon ties into her immensely popular OUTLANDER series, and the Snodgrass is from her IMPERIALS space opera series.

No word yet on publication date, but you'll know when we do.

So... one more project done, one more book delivered, one more monkey off my back.

(Yes, I know. King Kong is still perched up on my shoulders. He was a king in his world, but I'll teach him fear).

Kill that damn dirty ape and stop me and my friends from trying to come up with one theory after another on characters and plots. Yesterday, while re-reading Storm of Swords, I was thinking that maybe Jon Snow and Ned Dayne were twins or something until I realized they are not even close in age. And why would Ashara Dayne throw herself out a window because her brother got killed? And are Shireen's nightmares about dragons the same as Danny and Tyrion's dreaming of dragons? Will Brienne become the undead's leader with the magic sword and will she fight a new, godly Hound in a reversal of fate? Is Tyrion really one of the three heads? What role will Gendry have? Will he be legitamized? AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
