Waiting on Wednesday: Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event I am joining, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read selection is:
Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love (Anthology)
Releases July 27, 2010

Full of dark seduction and modern romance, this short story collection presents a variety of talented voices sure to satisfy every werewolf, ghost, fallen angel, zombie, and shape-shifter’s dark desires.

1. Maggie Stiefvater
2. Becca Fitzpatrick (Patch from Hush, Hush is in it)
3. Rachel Vincent (Soul Screamer Story)
From Rachel's blog, "I turned in page proofs for "Fearless," my short story in the upcoming Kiss Me Deadly anthology. As usual, there are things I wish I could change/tighten, but time's up for that one, and I believe the book comes out in August. If you read the Soul Screamers series (especially after you've read My Soul To Keep) you might be wondering what's next for Kaylee. The answer to that is: Sabine. This new character turns Kaylee's world on end in My Soul To Steal, and the "Fearless" story is your chance to see Sabine through her own eyes, five months before we get a good long look at her through Kaylee's."
4. Karen Mahoney : The protagonist is Moth. Karen has a story in The Eternal Kiss with Moth also. In ‘The Spirit Jar’, Moth travels to London to retrieve an ancient Arabic text from an exclusive occult collection. However, what should be a relatively straightforward mission turns into something much more dangerous – and poignant – when she finds herself joining forces with a heartbroken Djinn boy to fight an evil magician. There’s a dark spirit stalking the backstreets of London that must be stopped at all costs…
5. Diana Peterfreund “Errant” is her first a historical-set story.
6. Daniel Waters
7. Carrie Ryan (Story is about Sister Tabitha from The Forest of Hands and Teeth when she was Mary's age. It answers a few more questions about the village, the Sisterhood and Tabitha's motivation.)
8. Justine Musk
9. Daniel Marks
10. Sarah Rees Brennan
"My story in Kiss Me Deadly is called The Spy Who Never Grew Up, and it is about Peter Pan in a tux with a dead leaf as a bowtie, the Queen of England, and the captain of a crack team of killer fairies called Ninja Star."
