From official release/information:
Product Description: In this dark and gritty collection--featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman--nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil.... Unfortunately, that's exactly what makes it so easy to cross the line.
In Jim Butcher's Cold Case, Molly Carpenter--Harry Dresden's apprentice-turned-Winter Lady--must collect a tribute from a remote Fae colony and discovers that even if you're a good girl, sometimes you have to be bad. Seanan McGuire's Sleepover finds half-succubus Elsie Harrington kidnapped by a group of desperate teenage boys. Not for anything "weird". They just need her to rescue a little girl from the boogeyman. No biggie. In Kevin J. Anderson's Eye of Newt, Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble's latest client is a panicky lizard missing an eye who thinks someone wants him dead. But the truth is that someone only wants him for a very special dinner. And Rob Thurman's infernally heroic Caliban Leandros takes a trip down memory lane as he deals wih some overdue--and nightmarish--vengeance involving some quite nasty Impossible Monsters.
Also includes stories by: Tanya Huff * Kat Richardson * Jim C. Hines * Anton Strout * Lucy A. Snyder * Kristine Kathryn Rusch * Erik Scott de Bie.
