Throwback Thursday (51)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;

Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

Oh, many of you know I'm an anthology lover.  I love those short stories with just tastes of what new authors, and already loved authors, have to share with us.  This one was on the TOP of my list before it was released and when it hit the shelves I jumped to go get it.  And darn that time issue for not giving me the time to get caught up to read this.  I REALLY want to get to it, and it's with my hearts desire of Fantasy stories.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Seventeen original tales of sword and sorcery penned by masters old and new 

Elric . . . the Black Company . . . Majipoor. For years, these have been some of the names that have captured the hearts of generations of readers and embodied the sword and sorcery genre. And now some of the most beloved and bestselling fantasy writers working today deliver stunning all-new sword and sorcery stories in an anthology of small stakes but high action, grim humor mixed with gritty violence, fierce monsters and fabulous treasures, and, of course, swordplay. Don't miss the adventure of the decade!


  1. There are a couple of really great writers in that list. Sounds like a good anthology.

  2. I have to be honest, I don't like the cover. The composition is horrid. HOwever, the book sounds interesting. I love monsters! :)

  3. Blodeuedd - Well, if you are running out of room on those shelves, I would *gladly* *batting eyelashes* keep an eye on them for you. I could always find room, if you'd like. ;D

    Carol - Yes, there are some amazing fantasy writers that joined in on this one. :) Thank you!

    Melissa (Books&Things) - I can see, and agree with the cover. But I love the authors that are in here! :D Thank you!

  4. It's been a great long while since I read any sword and sorcery; perhaps the shorter pieces in this anthology will be enough for me.

  5. I like anthologies for the same reason. I love the opportunity to try a sample from an author I've been wanting to read. :)

    This one looks like it has a wide range of authors to try. Very cool. Hope you enjoy.

  6. I prefer long reads so unless I know the author I tend not read anthos...

  7. I feel like I'm picking up a lot of anthologies recently myself - always good when you don't feel like concentrating for too long as well! Hopeyou get to read it at some point! :)

  8. StephanieD - Oh, I hope you give this one a try. :) I want to get to it, but darn these stacks. lol. Thank you for stopping by!

    Missie, The Unread Reader - Thank you. Glad to hear you like anthologies too. :)

    Cherry - Sorry to hear you don't care much for anthos. Thanks for stopping by.

    Mel - I like getting short stories, I feel like I get so much more reading done and more stories. I'm hooked on the short stories.
