Love, death and war…

The Morrigan goddess represented all three to the ancient Celts. Journey with our authors as they tell stories of love, war, hatred, revenge and mortality - each featuring the Morrigan in her many guises.

Re-visit the world of Deverry, and of Nevyn, with a previously unpublished tale by Katharine Kerr, watch the Norse gods meet their Celtic counterparts with Elaine Cunningham, meet a druid who dances for the dead with C.E. Murphy and follow the path of a Roman centurion with Anya Bast.

(Having seen the previous version of this post, briefly.)

I have to admit I only recognise two names on that list, though that's probably more a case that I don't tend to read the markets in which the others sell. (KK is t'other one.) But it's a recognition of how far you've come that you're now one of the featured names on the cover.

Sorry about that! The Paypal link was screwed up, and then it took a lot of fiddling.

It boggles me little mind that I'm a headliner, yah. At least one of the other anthologies out this year is featuring my name on the cover as well. I honestly find it astonishing. :)
