Dark Duets is a feast of eerie and mesmerizing horror, thriller, and dark fantasy tales—an ambitious and unique anthology featuring biting and atmospheric original stories from seventeen pairs of acclaimed writers, all collaborating together for the first time, including New York Times bestselling authors Charlaine Harris, Rachel Caine, Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Stuart MacBride, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jonathan Maberry and David Liss.
Penned by two authors—and in one case, a trio—who have never worked together before, the stories in this enthralling literary chemistry blend diverse elements and rich themes into mesmerizing and highly combustible tales that delve deep into the shadowy, unexplored realms of the imagination.
On the night before Halloween, an unwitting young woman falls under the spell of a dangerous man—and into a terrifying multiverse—in "T Rhymer" by Gregory Frost and Jonathan Maberry. Sarah MacLean and Carrie Ryan explore the exquisite agony of eternal love in "She, Doomed Girl." "Welded" by Tom Piccirilli and T. M. Wright offers an unsettling vision of evil that infects and destroys lives.
Mixing the ordinary with the extraordinary, these bold and vivid stories offer a compelling survey of the supernatural world that is sure to frighten and enchant.
Jas Grimshaw works as a mining pilot for the ice harvesting operations at New Jakarta Space Station. In his free time, he's a mindbase traveller. His mind travels on a bullet probe to other parts of settled space to swap bodies while other people occupy his.
Normally, it's a great way of seeing the galaxy, but one of his swaps is about to go very, very bad. The swap mind, a brilliant scientist, has no intention to return to his body, which he's left in a tight spot. And Jas, laid back, poorly-educated, is not the best person to cope with the tense situation.
Few authors have achieved such renown as World Fantasy Life Achievement honoree and Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Andre Norton.

E. Hoffmann Price was one of the "Weird Tales Circle" that included H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith. In fact, he was the only person to meet both Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft in person.
The 14 stories collected here span multiple genres and multiple decades: detective, western, adventure, and fantasy. The one thing they have in common (aside from some mildly titillating content required by the "Spicy" pulp magazines) is the sure voice of a born storyteller. Once you start reading an E. Hoffmann Price story, you won’t put it down. The introduction by Darrell Schweitzer, which leads off the collection, provides a lot more information on Ed’s work for the "Spicy" magazines...though quite tame by modern standards, they were considered risque in their day.
Included in this volume are:

REVOLT OF THE DAMNED
