Read a couple of the stories before returning to the library. Good so far
  DobbyHasWings | Jun 22, 2016 |
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.

1. "Love Hurts" by Jim Butcher [a Harry Dresden story]
2. "The Marrying Maid" by Jo Beverly
3. "Rooftops" by Carrie Vaughn
4. "Hurt Me" by M.L.N. Hanover
5. "Demon Lover" by Cecelia Holland
6. "The Wayfarer's Advice" by Melinda M. Snodgrass [an Imperials story]
7. "Blue Boots" by Robin Hobb
8. "The Thing About Cassandra" by Neil Gaiman
9. "After the Blood" by Marjorie M. Liu
10. "You and You Alone" by Jacqueline Carey [a Kushiel story]
11. "His Wolf" by Lisa Tuttle
12. "Courting Trouble" by Linnea Sinclair
13. The Demon Dancer by Mary Jo Putney
14. Under/Above the Water by Tanith Lee
15. Kaskia by Peter S. Beagle
16. Man in the Mirror by Yasmine Ganelorn
17. A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows by Diana Gabaldon (an Outlander story) ( )

Was disappointed to find that the Dresden offering was a repeat from another book. I only read the authors that I've read in the past. Their stories were pretty good. ( )

First words
The earliest reference we can find for the phrase "star-crossed lovers" traces it to 1595, attributing it to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, a tragedy about the doomed romance that blossoms between a young man and a young woman on the brawling streets of Verona, a romance that is destined to fail because the families they come from are locked in a deadly feud: "From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, / a pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life."
