Summary

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Seasoned fantasy/horror writer Golden set up this anthology to explore the potential of writers who have never collaborated before, joining forces to produce horror or dark fantasy short fiction. The result covers the entire spectrum of those genres, including paranormal romance, a recent addition to short fiction after a flourishing career at novel length. Some are between well-knowns and unknowns, some between comparative unknowns, and at least one is among three women, whose skill has turned what might have been a didactic bore into an absorbing exploration of gender working their way around one another. The level of both concept and execution is consistently high. And this volume also serves as a respectable introductory volume to its fields for smaller collections.--Green, Roland Copyright 2010 Booklist"
