Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love - Jim Butcher, Peter S. Beagle, Robin Hobb, Neil Gaiman, Tanith Lee, M.L.N. Hanover, Linnea Sinclair, Yasmine Galenorn, Cecelia Holland, Lisa Tuttle, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Marjorie M. Liu, Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Jacqueline Carey, Carrie Vaughn, Diana Gabaldon, George There were some really good stories in here. I think my favorite was actually Blue Boots, by Robin Hobb. As frequently as her writing has disappointed me recently, when she does something right, she does it really well. I discovered a new author I'm looking forward to reading more of. There were also a few stories I really didn't care for, too, which is the case with any anthology. I was actually pretty disappointed in the one by Peter S. Beagle. It's received good reviews by most readers, but it really fell flat for me.
