Waiting on Wednesday (107): Hex Appeal Edited by P.N. Elrod

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Hex Appeal Edited by P.N. Elrod

Publish Date: June 5, 2012
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin

Publisher's Description
Fall under the intoxicating spell of their hex appeal…

In the magical world that lies hidden beneath our own, witches and conjurers play deadly games. They know just the right spell to kill a man with one kiss—or raise him back again. And they’re not afraid to exact sweet revenge on those who dare to cross them. But what if you’re the unlucky soul who falls victim to a conjurer’s curse? And if you had the power to cast a magic spell of your own, would you use it?

In this bewitching collection, nine of today’s hottest paranormal authors tell all-new, otherworldly tales.  Spellbinding stories featuring bigfoot, albino vampires, professional wizards, resurrected boyfriends and even a sex droid from the twenty- third century named Silicon Lily.  But as our conjurers are about to discover, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hexed.  And sometimes, even the best spun spells can lead to complete and utter mayhem.

Includes Stories From:
Ilona Andrews
Jim Butcher
Rachel Caine
Carole Nelson Douglas
P. N. Elrod
Simon R. Green
Lori Handeland
Erica Hayes
Carrier Vaughn

Hex stories are always interesting and I love anthologies.  I'm familiar with some of the authors already and love their work and can't wait to find more authors to love! - Jessica

  7. Awesome, awesome, AWESOME pick today!!!!! I haven't seen this one yet and I really loved Strange Brew! I love having Anthologies around to fill in those times I don't want to start a novel or anything big. Of course, they're great to find new authors, too!! I think I'm one of the few readers out there who likes witches, too :)
