Summary

A sorceress unravels a spell and gets a result she never expected; a young girl wins a contest and gets to speak with a god; a secret vampire fears she'll be blamed for the depredations of another of her kind; a minstrel travels with a witch who has a pair of very unusual cart horses--these are what the reader will find in this anthology of fantasy short stories. Although each story is different, they have one thing in common--they all feature female protagonists. 
This anthology includes "The Sow's Ear", which was originally published in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress anthology series.

    “You really can’t write a California Gothic. It would become some inane comedy with movie stars and margaritas and alien abductions.” --Milagro de Los Santos 
    Quirky, flirty aspiring writer Milagro De Los Santos thinks she's finally found love and a home at the wine country ranch of fabulous Oswald Grant, MD, and his snobby relatives, who have a rare genetic disorder that some call vampirism. But Milagro is bewildered when she's excluded from a mysterious midnight ceremony whose participants include Oswald's hostile parents, a creepy family elder, and Milagro's ex-lover, decadent and powerful Ian Ducharme. 
    When Milagro's life is threatened, she flees to the desert to hide and work on a screenplay. Instead of solitude, she encounters an egomaniacal actor, a partying socialite, a sly tabloid reporter, and a lavish spa full of dark secrets. 
    Now all she has to do is finish her screenplay, ambush a world domination movement, and overcome a terrible infection before she can make her way back to Casa Dracula.

    Many on Gor do not believe the great ship of Tersites, the lame, scorned, half-blind, half-mad shipwright, originally of Port Kar, exists. Surely it is a matter of no more than legend. In the previous book, however, Swordsmen of Gor, we learned that the great ship, commissioned by unusual warriors for a mysterious mission, was secretly built in the northern forests and brought down the Alexandra to Thassa, the sea, beginning her voyage to the “World’s End,” hazarding waters beyond the “farther islands” from which no ship had returned.   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Mariners of Gor is the 30th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    American Gods: The Tenth...

    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic—an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman. 
    A storm is coming . . .  
    Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life. 
    But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow’s best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself. 
    Life as Wednesday’s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined—it is a job that takes him on a dark and strange road trip and introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. Along the way Shadow will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. Ultimately, he will discover that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and that he is standing squarely in its path. 
    Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.

Something horrifying happened to him there. Memories of an ordeal that flicker and taunt, but cannot be recalled.
