Fantasies Collide, Vol. 5 by Kristine Kathryn Rusch & Dean Wesley Smith digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

The Final Volume in the Acclaimed Series!

Volume 5 ends the series with twenty dark fantasy stories. And Rusch and Smith do dark fantasy better than any two writers working today.

For more than four decades, New York Times and USA Today bestselling writers Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith wrote professional fantasy short stories that won awards and sold millions of copies.

Now, for the first time, they collect together 100 of their fantasy short stories into a five-volume set called Fantasies Collide. Fifty stories total from each author, with ten stories from Rusch and ten from Smith in every volume.

The twenty dark fantasy stories in this volume offer voyages into the darkest shadows with just a hint of light.
