Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love - Diana Gabaldon, Carrie Vaughn, Jacqueline Carey, Jo Beverley, Gardner R. Dozois, Mary Jo Putney, Marjorie M. Liu, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Cecelia Holland, Peter S. Beagle, Yasmine Galenorn, Linnea Sinclair, M.L.N. Hanover, Tanith Lee, Neil Gaiman, Robin Hobb, George R.R. M This is an sff/romance anthology, with a contributor list definitely a cut above the average. (Editor Martin has the connections!) My favorites were the entries from Tanith Lee, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Peter S. Beagle and Neil Gaiman (who contributes an actual story, rather than the short poem he usually gives anthologies!) - but many of the others were very good as well. Recommended.
