Looking Forward to... (3)

Well, many of you have noticed I am on a fantasy kick lately.  I have really been enjoying by fantasy reads and anthologies as well.  So, I am going to add to the list another one I am looking forward to.

You may notice my Desired list on the right side bar.  I am going to start going down through these books, one a week.  Just to give you a little glimps at what I am looking forward to this summer into winter.

The first book on the list is to be out June 22.  It is an anthology in fantasy worlds.

This Anthology has a great list of amazing authors. 

Here is the list:

Introduction: Check Your Dark Lord at the Door by Lou Anders & Jonathan Strahan
Goats of Glory by Steven Erikson
Tides Elba: A Tale of the Black Company by Glen Cook
Bloodsport by Gene Wolfe
The Singing Spear by James Enge
A Wizard of Wiscezan by C.J. Cherryh
A Rich Full Week by K. J. Parker
A Suitable Present for a Sorcerous Puppet by Garth Nix
Red Pearls: An Elric Story by Michael Moorcock
The Deification of Dal Bamore by Tim Lebbon
Dark Times at the Midnight Market by Robert Silverberg
The Undefiled by Greg Keyes
Hew the Tint Master by Michael Shea
In the Stacks by Scott Lynch
Two Lions, A Witch, and the War-Robe by Tanith Lee
The Sea Troll's Daughter by Caitlin R Kiernan
Thieves of Daring by Bill Willingham
The Fool Jobs by Joe Abercrombie

I look forward to blending my two favorite into one book, Anthology and Fantasy.

Love anthologies, so have added this to my wishlist. Glen Cook is always good, but the others don't sound familiar. Thanks for the heads up! :)

Not fan of the cover, but I do enjoy anthologies. You get introduced to some great writers!

Melissa - Funny you should mention the cover. Many people have said the same thing, that they don't really care for the cover. But for fantasy stories, I am interested in trying out the anthology. Like you mentioned you do get to read some great authors. :)
