A fun and unique story collection, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner, MANY BLOODY RETURNS contains thirteen all new, never before published stories, each one offering a fresh take on the concept of what birthdays mean to the undead. “Toni and I had some wonderful planning sessions about the theme for the anthology,” writes Charlaine Harris in the introduction to the book. “We decided to pick two apparently unrelated concepts—vampires (the dead) and birthdays (normally considered a celebration of life)—and see what different ways some very talented writers could combine the two.” Contributors include: Charlaine Harris, Toni L.P. Kelner, Christopher Golden, Bill Crider, Kelley Armstrong, Jim Butcher, P.N. Elrod, Rachel Caine, Jeanne C. Stein, Tanya Huff, Carolyn Haines, Tate Hallaway, and Elaine Viets. Harris and Kelner were careful to choose an even balance of traditional mystery and traditional fantasy writers; the result is an outstanding anthology and “a fantastic introduction for new readers to some of the best-known writers in the field” (RT Book Reviews).
MANY BLOODY RETURNS: Tales of Birthdays with Bite, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, will be published in hardcover by Ace Books on September 4, 2007 ($24.95/ISBN: 978-0-441-01522-1).
