The official patter:
"A mysterious circus terrifies an audience for one extraordinary performance before disappearing into the night, taking one of the spectators along with it . . .

In a novella set two years after the events of American Gods, Shadow pays a visit to an ancient Scottish mansion, and finds himself trapped in a game of murder and monsters . . .

In a Hugo Award-winning short story set in a strangely altered Victorian England, the great detective Sherlock Holmes must solve a most unsettling royal murder . . .

Two teenage boys crash a party and meet the girls of their dreams—and nightmares . . .

In a Locus Award-winning tale, the members of an excusive epicurean club lament that they've eaten everything that can be eaten, with the exception of a legendary, rare, and exceedingly dangerous Egyptian bird . . .

Such marvelous creations and more—including a short story set in the world of The Matrix, and others set in the worlds of gothic fiction and children's fiction—can be found in this extraordinary collection, which showcases Gaiman's storytelling brilliance as well as his terrifyingly entertaining dark sense of humor. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary enchantment from one of the most unique writers of our time."

Ok, so I already have this in a signed hardcover edition... so I don't really need this edition... but what if I need an everyday copy to preserve the signed copy? But look, Neil's on the cover, how cool is that. Plus amorphous purple blobby thing. I'm sold!

The official patter:
"Everything they knew is gone.

From the raging fires, five men emerge with extraordinary new powers. They must learn how to survive this dark, ravaged world . . . but they cannot do it alone.

Simon Japp will never forget his violent past. But when civilization is all but destroyed, he sees his chance for redemption. Blessed with a strange "gift," he's determined to help the resistance against the Strangers, the mysterious force that stalks them at every turn. He can't afford to get distracted, even by the stunning, soft-spoken woman fighting by his side . . . Sage Corrigan has learned to be careful where she places her trust. But she sees something good in Simon, even if he can't see it in himself. Posing as lovers to infiltrate a group key to their fight, they find that their staged affection soon develops into a desire that will leave them fighting for their lives in the night eternal . . ."

So, I'm not really a romance girl. But, the thing is, Joss Ware, it's really Colleen Gleason, of the fabulous Gardella the Vampire Chronicles. So I'm willing to give this new series, which started with Beyond the Night, out last month, a shot. Plus, can I just say how relieved I am that Joss Ware is Colleen Gleason, because when she originally did the announcements on her site of her new "writer friend" I was very confused and wondering why this author had a doppelganger. So at least I now know it's her and she doesn't have some weird uber fan who dresses just like her and wants to be her... cause that would be weird... but on the other hand, perhaps a good book?


Ooooh, I'll def give this one a try :D
