In the introduction to Tales of the Otherworld, Kelley Armstrong explains how she developed an annual tradition of writing a story for her fans and posting it on her website. The stories were based on the results of reader polls. The first volume Men of the Otherworld cover the werewolves we'd come to know throughout the books. This time the stories are a mix, adding additional insight into many of the other reoccurring characters from the novels. The proceeds of both of these books go to the World Literacy of Canada. If you're a fan of the novels, you really need to get these books to fill in some of the background you've probably wondered about and besides you'll be helping a good cause.

From official release/information:

Product Description: New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong has bewitched audiences with her Otherworld series of supernatural thrillers. Now, in this new collection of shorter fiction, some of Armstrong's most tantalizing lead characters appear alongside her unforgettable supporting players, who step out of the shadows and into the light.

Have you ever wondered how lone wolf Clayton Danvers finally got bitten by the last thing he ever expected: love? Or how the hot-blooded bad-girl witch Eve Levine managed to ensnare the cold, ruthless corporate sorcerer Kristof Nast in one of the Otherworld's most unlikely pairings? Would you like to be a fly on the wall at the wedding of Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne as their eminently practical plans are upended by their well-meaning friends? Or tag along with Lucas and Paige as they investigate a gruesome crime that looks to be the work of a rogue vampire?
Now devotees of the Otherworld can share these special moments with some of their favorite characters—as well as discovering deeper insights into the lives of some of the lesser-known players. But even readers new to the

Otherworld universe will find much to love in these seven tales of friendship, adventure, and enduring romance. For when the superhuman men and women of the Otherworld set their minds to a task, they do so with fierce passion and an undivided sense of purpose that make them, in the end, very much human.
