Anthology - Places To Be, People To Kill
Assassins-are they born or made? Do they choose this role out of necessity, because they are forced to, or because they enjoy killling? And what do they do in their spare time?
These are just a few of the questions answered in this all-original collection of twelve tales by fantasy's finest-focusing on killers of all kinds. From Vree, Tanya Huff's well-known assassin from her Quarters novels, to a woman whose father's vengeful spirit forced her down dark magic's bloody path, to an assassin seeking to escape his Master's death spell, here are spellbinding stories of murder and mayhem, and the shadowy figures who sell death for a living.
In this engaging collection, Tanya Huff's "Exactly" demonstrates why the only thing worse than an assassin on duty is one who is off duty, while in "The Hundredth Kill," a young boy learns that some assassins' duties last beyond death. These stories, together with ten other tales by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Ed Gorman, Jean Rabe, and other genre veterans, demonstrate the multiple talents of those who stalk the night, fulfilling their orders to kill. A good addition to most fantasy or paperback collections.
