Summary

They say there are only two things you can count on ... 
But that was before DEATH started pondering the existential. Of course, the last thing anyone needs is a squeamish Grim Reaper and soon his Discworld bosses have sent him off with best wishes and a well-earned gold watch. Now DEATH is having the time of his life, finding greener pastures where he can put his scythe to a whole new use. 
But like every cutback in an important public service, DEATH's demise soon leads to chaos and unrest -- literally, for those whose time was supposed to be up, like Windle Poons. The oldest geezer in the entire faculty of Unseen University -- home of magic, wizardry, and big dinners -- Windle was looking forward to a wonderful afterlife, not this boring been-there-done-that routine. To get the fresh start he deserves, Windle and the rest of Ankh-Morpork's undead and underemployed set off to find DEATH and save the world for the living (and everybody else, of course).

    New from USA Today bestselling author Michael James Ploof 
    Long ago, the elf Eldarian defeated the Lord of Darkness and Death during the God Wars. To protect the world from the unbridled power of the Dark One, Eldarian took up the mantle, and allowed himself to be imprisoned by the gods for all time. But now, Kellallea’s grand plan is coming to fruition. She has ascended to the heavens, and her meddling has weakened her beloved Eldarian’s eternal prison. 
    Soon he will be free. 
    Whill has returned from the north victorious, and now prepares to face his greatest challenge—the Mantle of Darkness. He has realized his true power, and has been tasked with an impossible quest. For only he can defeat Eldarian and save the world, but to do so, he must take up the mantle for himself, and be damned to the eternal prison of the gods. 
    Can Whill make the ultimate sacrifice to save everything that he loves, or will the world fall into an age of darkness from which it shall never return?

    A stunning new collection of short fictions for adult readers from the World Fantasy Award– and Newbery Medal–winning author of The Girl Who Drank the Moon.   From award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Kelly Barnhill comes a stunning first collection of acclaimed short fictions, teeming with uncanny characters whose stories unfold in worlds at once strikingly human and eerily original.    When Mrs. Sorensen’s husband dies, she rekindles a long-dormant love with an unsuitable mate in “Mrs. Sorensen and the Sasquatch.” In “Open the Door and the Light Pours Through,” a young man wrestles with grief and his sexuality in an exchange of letters with his faraway beloved. “Dreadful Young Ladies” demonstrates the strength and power—known and unknown—of the imagination. “The Insect and the Astronomer” upends expectations about good and bad, knowledge and ignorance, love and longing. The World Fantasy Award–winning novella The Unlicensed Magician introduces the secret, magical life of an invisible girl once left for dead.   By an author hailed as “a fantasist on the order of Neil Gaiman” (Minneapolis Star Tribune), the stories in Dreadful Young Ladies feature bold, reality-bending fantasy underscored by rich universal themes of love, death, jealousy, and hope.
