    One thought on “Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love

    1. Nikki on said:

      I only read selected stories from Songs of Love and Death, because some of the authors or the first pages didn't appeal. (For example, me and Jim Butcher don't get on very well. Everyone else says the misogyny is just Harry Dresden and is part of his character and it doesn't come from Jim Butcher: it still makes me feel profoundly uncomfortable.)So, of the ones I read, the first was Jo Beverley's 'The Marrying Maid'. I liked the idea, especially the link to the Robin Hood legend. It could've bee [...]

    2. Lisa Wolf on said:

      I picked up "Songs of Love and Death" specifically to read the new story by Diana Gabaldon ("A Leaf on the Wind of All Saint's"), and it was certainly worth it! "Leaf" is a fantastic addition to Gabaldon's works in the Outlander series. Focusing on a character we've previously heard about but never met, this story explores a plot point introduced in the 7th book in the series, Echo in the Bone. Without going into detail, in order to avoid spoilers, all I can say is that Gabaldon's fans MUST read [...]

      Bazı hikâyeler gerçekten çok iyiydi. Bazıları da tam tersi. Bu tür derlemelerde her zaman olduğu gibi. Favori öyküm "Kushiel's Dart"ın yazarının kaleminden çıkandı. Son derece ahlaksız ama bir o kadar da merak uyandırıcıydı. Dresden öyküsünü pek sevmedim, Gaiman'ın öyküsü de ortalamanın biraz üstündeydi. Arada başarılı bilimkurgu hikâyeleri görmek de güzel bir sürpriz oldu.

    4. Kris on said:

      I want to savor these stories little by little because they are so darn good but I find myself rushing through them needing to know what happened next!! I find this anthology so far to be quite fascinating and I am enjoying myself immensely reading through the creative and varied voices within these 'songs'.JACQUELINE CAREY: this was the first story that I chose - and quite purposefully, at that. It was of Anafiel Delunay, who was once known as Anafiel de Montreve, a poet that was good enough to [...]

    5. Brittany on said:

      Wow talk about your sucker punch to the stomach. I thought Martin and Dozois were just being irritating by holding Diana Gabaldon's story until last in the collection; like promising you cheesecake, but not until after you eat your whole dinner. But now I see why they did it. Nobody could have followed Gabaldon's story "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows." Not Peter Beagle or Neil Gaiman. Not anyone. I'll review the whole book and then we can get back to "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows." Toute [...]

    6. Donna on said:

      As with any anthology, this is a mixed bag.The high points were Carrie Vaughn's "Rooftops" (a nicely-paced story about a playwright whose life changes after she's saved by a superhero) and Neil Gaiman's "The Thing About Cassandra" (an imaginative story about a man coming across a lie from his past). I also enjoyed Robin Hobb's return to the Six Duchies in "Blue Boots" and the gritty-but-satisfying "Hurt Me" by M.L.N. Hanover.Some of the other stories were well-written or had interesting moments, [...]

    7. All Things Urban Fantasy on said:

      Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyThe moment I heard the words ‘Outlander spinoff’, I was sold. Diana Gabaldon’s epic Outlander series is probably my all time favorite series ever in any genre. The other authors who I love in this anthology like Jim Butcher, Carrie Vaughn, and Yasmine Galenorn are just icing on the cake.“Love Hurts” by Jim Butcher (a Harry Dresden story)In addition to the main series, I have now read several short stories starring the Wizard P.I. Harry Dresden [...]

    8. Lynne Perednia on said:

      This new cross-genre anthology purports to be an "all original" collection of tales of star-crossed lovers written by fantasy, romance, horror and crime authors. The all-original tag doesn't hold up with the first story, Jim Butcher's "Love Hurts", in which Dresden and a friend fall victim to a spell. It's the same setup seen in hundreds of TV shows in which characters flirt with, or are tricked into thinking, they are in love and go back to their old ways by story's end.The introduction is odd [...]

    9. Bonnie on said:

      The 4 star rating is based solely upon the short story “A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows” written by Diana Gabaldon!When I read on Diana's website that not only did she have a short story published in "Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love" but that it was a story about Roger! In "An Echo in the Bone" Diana Gabaldon generated yet another mystery that had to do with Roger's parents. I really enjoyed this even though it only made me want more it did answer the quest [...]

    10. Monica on said:

      I really enjoyed this anthology and am going to post some of the specifics about a few of the stories, but not all of them, that would make for an incredibly long review. I enjoyed the theme of this anthology (being star-crossed lovers) and I enjoyed meeting new characters and learning things about some of my favorite characters I did not know. I hope you enjoy it as well.Love Hurts by: Jim ButcherThis was a cute, short, pretty easy and flowing story. I found it a tad bit shocking because of the [...]

      ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois have collected a nice batch of all-new stories from an all-star cast in Songs of Love and Death. The theme is "star-crossed lovers," and as you might guess from the title, each tale is a love story, and many are death stories, too. Some are sad, some are sexy, and one or two are slightly sappy. Overall, I enjoyed the collection. Here's what you'll find in Songs of Love and Death:-- "Love Hurts" by Jim Butcher may be th [...]

    12. Cheryl on said:

      Songs of Love and Death is the perfect anthology for every reader. It has a little bit of everything for everyone from paranormal, zombies, and favorite characters from series… as well as new stories from best selling authors. This anthology brings out the heavy hitters. Mr. Jim Butcher brings his tough as nails Harry Dresden, a puzzling string of love pact murder cases in Love Hurts. Meet some magical sea creatures in Melinda M. Snodgrass’s The Wayfarer’s Advice. There are so many good st [...]

    13. Virginia on said:

      I think the hardest part of anthologies is that it seems so long (because there are so many stories) and I feel as if I have to invest much more than I actually have to. Plus, there is nothing to keep me hooked between stories - vs a novel of this length, there is the driving desire to find out what happened.I did enjoy most of the short stories and a few really stayed with me. (Some were a bit too creepy for me, though.) The standouts for me were: Hurt Me by MLN HanoverAfter the Blood by Marjor [...]

    14. Dina James on said:

      So many fantastic authors! I especially loved (and bought it just for) the Jacqueline Cary story. Utter brilliance. Being a Harry Dresden fan, I loved Jim Butcher's contribution as well, and Neil Gaiman's story was typical Neil brilliance. Highly recommended!

    15. Zuleika on said:

      Overall An anthology filled with 17 stories about star-crossed lovers. I enjoyed almost all stories and was introduced to a lot of new writers (I only knew maybe half of these authors before reading). There is a good mixture of different genres which I consider a pro, but I can understand why someone might consider it a con, in case they only end up liking only one or two stories/genres. But if you like (a touch of) fantasy and love stories, then I think you are good with the majority of the sto [...]

    16. Ryan on said:

      Assorted work by multiple writers and edited by George R.R. Martin & Gardner Dozois. Being familiar with multiple anthologies edited by Martin, I was instantaneously interested. I picked this up after misplacing my current read "Latro in the Mist" and figured it would be the perfect opportunity to carve through some shorts while I wait for its return and/or rediscovery.  They are all quick reads and as the title suggests, all are around the disasters that love and death can bring. Some are [...]

    17. Kate on said:

      Well, this was the best compilation of short stories that I have ever read. I can really say that I truly adored every single one.Love Hurts by Jim ButcherThis is a Dresden files story, and I really liked the way it was written. It was very clear and easy to follow, easy to get a mental image from descriptions. Maybe I'll read some Dresden FIles books now!The Marrying Maid by Jo BeverlyCute, cute, cute! I love how it was historical fantasy! I could totally read this to girlfriends at a girly sle [...]

    18. Şeyma on said:

      Salt aşk türünde kitaplar okumaktan pek hoşlanmasam da fantastik öykülere aşk öğeleri katılınca öykü benim için başka bir boyuta geçmiş oluyor. Derlemenin editörü de yazarları da -çoğu- bayıldığım ya da merak ettiğim yazarlardı ama çok büyük bir beklentiyle başlamadım. Öyküde romanda olduğu kadar geniş bir fantastik dünya yaratmak zor, bu yüzden o açıdan çok fazla bir beklentiye girmedim. Çok şaşırarak/beğenerek okuduğum bir fantastik evren olmadı [...]

    19. JG (The Introverted Reader) on said:

      This collection of short stories is exactly what the subtitle says: tales of star-crossed love. Crossing a gamut of sub-genres within the realms of science fiction and fantasy, there should be something here for almost everyone.As with almost any anthology, there were stories that I loved and some that just didn't do anything for me. I was a little afraid that it would start to get depressing (star-crossed love just doesn't sound happy, now does it?) but there was a good balance of happy and sad [...]

    20. Izlinda on said:

      I wrote quick phrases of each short story to remind me what they were about whenever I was going to write my full review. Jim Butcher – Love Hurts – Dresden, love spells. Heard of the author but haven't read any of his books. I didn't feel like I was flailing around trying to figure out the relationship between the characters or special info about them.Jo Beverly – The Marrying Maid – Hate it. Hate hate hate. Tatiana, Oberon, family curse. I just hated this story. It basically seems like [...]

    21. Jacquelyn on said:

      This is a really great collection of 17 short stories by different authors ranging from romance to sci-fi to horror, all of which are about "star-crossed lovers". The huge number of stories is both a gift and a curse, since I felt overwhelmed by how many stories I had left, but I also didn't feel bad about picking and choosing. Oh you like straight-up romance? There are a few of those. Aliens? Yup, that too. Fairy tales? Ghost stories? Superheroes? Yup, yup, yup. I originally picked it up becaus [...]

    22. Lisa on said:

      I bought this book mainly for the Diana Gabaldon's short story about Roger MacKenzie's parents, which I loved and wished that it was longer. That story rated 4 stars but the rest of the stories, or rather, the ones that I read, rated 3. The ones I read and liked (3 stars) was:'Love Hurts' by Jim Butcher - a Harry Dresden tale where he "battles with the secret desires of his heart" - it was okay, kinda felt flat to me, maybe because it was too short? Don't know.'The Marrying Maid' by Jo Beverley [...]

    23. Linda I on said:

      This is a wonderful collection of short stories by some of todays hottest writers: Neil Gaiman, Diana Gabaldon, Jim Butcher, Jacqueline Carey, Marjorie M. Liu, and Carrie Vaughn, to name a few. Though I won't give a synopsis of each of the 17 stories included in this anthology, I do want to explain which are part of ongoing series. Jim Butchers "Love Hurts" is a Harry Dresden story. Jacqueline Carey's "You, and You Alone" is a Kushiel story (though it seemed more like an extract rather than a st [...]

    24. Althea Ann on said:

      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.Contents:1. "Love Hurts" by Jim Butcher [a Harry Dresden story]2. "The Marrying Maid" by Jo Beverly3. "Roof [...]

    25. JenniferRedstreake-Geary on said:

      I would say about 2/3rds of the stories were fantastic! I wanted to read on and on and hated that they were ending and I had to start on to a new short story. Jim Butcher is, of course, fabulous. I love his stories that include Harry Dresden anyway. And Neil Gaiman is a genius, his short story "The Thing about Cassandra" was creepy and eery, but ooh soooo good in that awesome Gaiman way. My all time favorite Diana Gabaldon has a short in this as well, a cool little story about Roger's dad (if yo [...]

    26. Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides on said:

      I'm going to be lazy and copy a comment I made to Hirondelle earlier, because it says most of what I have to say about this book.There were some I liked. I felt like about half the stories held my interest/were worth reading.The ones I thought well of, or at least was able to finish reading:"Love Hurts" by Jim Butcher"Hurt Me" by M.L.N. Hanover"The Thing About Cassandra" by Neil Gaiman"His Wolf" by Lisa Tuttle"Kaskia" by Peter S. BeagleOkay, so that's actually less than a third.Others' mileage m [...]

    27. Jason Goodman on said:

      Just the diversity alone is enough to recommend this book, naturally there are a few story's that could have been left on the dock, but that is what these books are all about. I would rate this book a long flight, at least 12 hours in First class, maybe it could be finished before landing, and definitely take it with you, it is a collection hardcover. Some of these where really out there where the bus'es don't run, unusual use of a thematic diligence. Here we ran the gamut of haunting's to way i [...]

    28. Melissa on said:

      These are a collection of stories by some very famous authors. Most of these stories are new. Some of these stories, like the one Jim Butcher gives us we read about familiar characters we have met before. All of them revolve around love and/or death. And although you would suspect a collection of lovely PNR stories, you actually get a bit of that and a lot of sci-fi with a bit of historical romance/death thrown in for good measure. Not all end on a happy note, nor on an expected one either, but [...]

    29. Barbara ★ on said:

      Most of the tales were incredibly bizarre and not very enjoyable -- MNL Hanover, Cecelia Holland, Neil Gaiman, Peter Beagle, Marjorie Liu and Tanith Lee. The stories by Lisa Tuttle, Mary Jo Putney, Yasmine Galenorn, Jo Beverly, Melinda Snodgrass, Carrie Vaughn and Robin Hobb were ok but nothing special.I was surprised by the Jim Butcher story - Love Hurts. I hated the first Harry Dresden book but this was very good. I will now have to go back to Harry's series and read book number 2 hoping it's [...]

      I only acquired a copy of the tales of Star Crossed Love because I wanted to read the novella A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows by Diana Gabaldon.If you are familiar with the Outlander series - you will understand the need to find out just a little bit more about some of the minor characters.This is Jerry McKenzie's story - he's Roger's father - and was lost during WW2 when his spitfire crashed and burned.It's a beautifully evocative story, perfectly capturing the essence of London in the blitz, [...]
