Subterranean Press presents A FANTASY MEDLEY: four short stories by four fantasy authors.

In “Zen and the Art of Vampirism,” Zoe Takano, the only vampire in Toronto, a city filled with supernatural creatures of Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld, finds her place in the hierarchy threatened by two interlopers.

“Riding the Shore of the River of Death” returns us to the world of Kate Elliott’s Crown of Stars. Kareka, daughter of the begh of the Kirshat, hunts to take a man’s head. It is her last opportunity to prove herself as a man or else she will find herself restricted to the role of woman and wife in the clan forever.

Robin Hobb revisits her Farseer world in “Words Like Coins.” Mirrifen, a failed hedge-witch’s apprentice who has married to find security finds that threatened by a severe drought and the appearance of a pregnant female pecksie.

C.E. Murphy takes us to frozen Moscow in “From Russia, with Love.” Baba Yaga’s daughter is a barmaid at a dive when Janx and Eliseo Daisani walk in. They discover, as they compete for the girl’s affections, that Baba Yaga has plans for Janx and that her beautiful daughter had merely been the bait.

And we writer types are deeply grateful for those pre-orders. They genuinely make a difference. And March isn't that far away!

Absolutely! In the publishing world, March is practically tomorrow! Just set your alarm for March 1st and it'll be here before you know it! ;)

Yep - and keep your pipeline full, and you never worry about the wait, because you're always getting the item you ordered six months ago.

I hope they're taking note of their http referrers - because I'm another who's just gone and plonked down $60+ ...

A question: when you get to do your actual signing of the books, do you get the ability to know who they're for, or is that way beyound logisitcal expectations? I assume the latter.

You know, I *assume* it's beyond logistical expectation, but I'll check with earthgoat just in case. And in fact, I think they may be taking note of their referrers, because earthgoat mentioned in an email to all of us writer types that she'd gotten some orders via me and arcaedia and Robin's pre-order postings. :)

And thank you for pre-ordering! *beams* I'm really pretty excited about this book.
