Another Monkey Off My Back

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).

You know, there was a time I would have scoffed at this... but my appetite has been whet for fantasy romance lately. I'm tempted to pick this up, and have the SoIaF-DA:O circle of Things Inspired By and/or Tied To George made complete.

And I miss that good old '70s stuff of yours, George, and I often re-read it.

Good collection of authors you have there. Looking forward to it.

My brain deceives me... that white square in the shadow will never
look as dark ad the dark square in the light... speaking of which,
that is exactly the picture I need to explain this phenomenon to my

Oh, and on topic... where can one find G.R.R.M.'s 70's stuff at? X3

Sounds wonderful, a lot of my favorite authors. I actually got Vaughn's Kitty books because I loved what she did in Wild Cards.

I like King Kong, but in this case...whip it! Whip it real good! :p Teach him fear indeed.

Tangent, but I love the lineup for the anthology. Gaiman, Carey, Beagle, Vaughn, Butcher = YAY! I'm sold.
