More of New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's most popular Otherworld characters get a chance to shine in this second short fiction collection, showcasing critical moments from many different lives.
Kelley Armstrong's readers have proven themselves a dedicated fan-base: her previous hardcover collection of short stories, Men of the Otherworld, appeared on the New York Times bestseller list, and Canadian lists too - despite three of the stories having been available, unedited and for free, for years on Armstrong's website. With a similar format - a handful of reedited stories and one wholly original novella - Tales of the Otherworld explores the lives of some of Armstrong's most popular characters, giving readers glimpses into how Clay and Elena met, how Eve and Kristof first hooked up (a brand new novella), and how Lucas and Paige got married. Kelley is a superstar of the genre, and Tales of the Otherworld is a great way to begin 2010.
KELLEY ARMSTRONG is the author of the Women of the Otherworld series, as well as the New York Times #1 bestselling young adult trilogy, Darkest Powers. She lives in rural Ontario with her family.
“There is something for everyone between the covers. Fans of the Otherworld can find out more about their favourite characters, and many new readers will be intrigued enough to pursue the novels. The book is a win-win situation for any reader.”
— The Globe and Mail
Praise for Kelley Armstrong:
“Like Stephen King, . . . Armstrong not only writes interesting page-turners, she has also achieved that unlikely goal, what all writers strive for: a genre of her own. . . . This is not The Call of the Wild; it’s Nora Roberts meets The Sopranos by way of Henry David Thoreau.”
— The Walrus
Praise for Men of the Otherworld:
"The intriguing tales, originally published as serials on Armstrong's web site, unfold so fluidly that they read almost like a novel, providing a good introduction to new readers and a real treat for fans."
— Publishers Weekly
"It truly is a treat, even for those not familiar with Armstrong's previous work…. No matter which man is narrating…Armstrong creates a distinct and engaging voice and depth of character while maintaining her own sophisticated style."
— Winnipeg Free Press
Praise for Living With the Dead:
"As Armstrong readers have come to expect, this book is balanced between likable characters and the creepy evil that they fight, all wrapped together with nonstop, edge-of-your-seat action."
— Library Journal
"Rarely is the ninth book in a series as fresh and entertaining as the first, but this Women of the Otherworld volume defies the odds."
