Publisher's Summary

Award-winning, best-selling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he’s one of the hottest stars in literature today with “The Thing About Cassandra,” a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see. International blockbuster best-selling author Diana Gabaldon sends a World War II RAF pilot through a stone circle to the time of her Outlander series in “A Leaf on the Winds of All Hallows.” Torn from all he knows, Jerry MacKenzie determinedly survives hardship and danger, intent on his goal of returning home to his wife and baby — no matter the cost. New York Times best-selling author Jim Butcher presents “Love Hurts,” in which Harry Dresden takes on one of his deadliest adversaries and in the process is forced to confront the secret desires of his own heart.

Just the smallest sampling promises unearthly delights, but look also for stories by New York Times best-selling romance authors Jo Beverley and Mary Jo Putney, and by such legends of the fantasy genre as Peter S. Beagle and Tanith Lee, as well as many other popular and beloved writers, including Marjorie M. Liu, Jacqueline Carey, Carrie Vaughn, and Robin Hobb. This exquisite anthology, crafted by the peerless editing team of George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, is sure to leave you under its spell.

    "Entertaining short stories"
    Where does Songs of Love and Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    SLD is, as most short story collections are, uneven, but overall entertaining. Neil Gaiman's tale is delightful, as is Peter S Beagle's. A few of the others are simply formulaic romance set in not-this-world, but nothing objectionable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Neil Gaiman--always a favorite.

    "Eclectic mix"
    What did you like best about Songs of Love and Death? What did you like least?

    This was definetely an eclectic mix of stories that I would not have normally bought on my own except that I was looking for one author in particular "Diana Gabaldon". The narration was good, except with it being mostly the same people sometimes you forget what story you're listening to and have to take a min and re-acclamate yourself. Overall it opened me up to genres and authors that I normally would not have tried.
