So what are those favorites? Carl Sagan’s COSMOS, and Oliver Jeffers’s STUCK, and…well, why are we telling you? Swing by for our Indies First party to find out the rest!

Murder By The Book, Wednesday, December 3 at 6:30pm
Join Charlaine Harris, Toni L. P. Kelner, Rachel Caine and Nicole Peeler as we celebrate the release of Dead But Not Forgotten (Ace; $26.95), an anthology featuring stories that take place in the Sookie Stackhouse world, but written by other authors. We'll start giving out numbers for this event on Tuesday, November 25th when Dead But Not Forgotten is released. Charlaine Harris is a New York Times bestselling author for both her Sookie Stackhouse fantasy/mystery series and her Harper Connelly Prime Crime mystery series. She has lived in the South her entire life. Toni L.P Kelner / Leigh Perry is the author of eleven mystery novels: eight Laura Fleming mysteries and three “Where are they now?” mysteries. Both series are available as audio books and e-books. Kelner is also the author of numerous short stories, and co-edits bestselling urban fantasy anthologies with Charlaine Harris. Their most recent are Games Creatures Play and Dead But Not Forgotten. Kelner has won the Agatha Award and an RT BookClub Lifetime Achievement Award, and has been nominated multiple times for the Anthony, the Macavity, and the Derringer. Writing as Leigh Perry, she recently debuted the Family Skeleton series for Berkley Prime Crime. Rachel Caine is the "New York Times" bestselling author of more than thirty novels, including the Weather Warden series, the Outcast Season series, the Revivalist series, and the Morganville Vampires series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and, until recently, carried on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas, which so far as she knows does not actually contain any vampires. Nicole D. Peeler writes urban fantasy for Orbit Books and, in her spare time, is an associate professor at Seton Hill University, where she co-directs their MFA in Writing Popular Fiction. Having recently finished the final book of her award-winning Jane True series, she is looking forward to the upcoming publication of Jinn and Juice, the first book in a series about a cursed jinni living in Pittsburgh. Nicole also lives in Pittsburgh, although she’s neither cursed nor a jinni.
