Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner collaborated to create a new anthology. The theme: supernatural creatures + schools. But not all these schools are conventional schools, and the characters learn more than the basic ABCs. An Apple for the Creature is the name of this new anthology and will be available in hardbook and ebook formats on Sept. 4.
You can anticipate some great stories from an all-star list of mystery and urban fantasy writers such as;
- Marjorie Liu
- Thomas Sniegoski
- Mike Carey
- Ilona Andrews
- Jonathan Maberry
- Donald Harstad
- Rhys Bowen
- Nancy Holder
- Faith Hunter
- Amber Benson
- Steve Hockensmith
- Charlaine Harris
- Toni L.P. Kelner
