Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Posted April 25, 2012 by Bonnie in Waiting on Wednesday / 3 Comments

Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by. Today’s post is ‘Waiting on Wednesday’ which is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re super excited about.

TitleAn Apple for the Creature

Author: Charlaine Harris, Ilona Andrews, Mike Carey, Thomas E. Sniegoski
Expected Release Date: September 4th 2012 

What could be scarier than the first day of school? How about An
Apple for the Creature, an all-new anthology from the editors of Home
Improvement: Undead Edition? Your worst school nightmares—taking
that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in school
assembly, not knowing which door to enter—pale in comparison to
these thirteen stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms.
In #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s story,
“Playing Possum,” Sookie Stackhouse brings enough birthday cupcakes
for her nephew’s entire kindergarten class but finds she’s one short
when a deranged gunman shows up. For those who like fangs with their
forensics, New York Times bestselling author Nancy Holder offers “VSI,”
in which an FBI agent is tested as never before in a school for Vampire
Scene Investigation. And in New York Times bestselling author Thomas
Sniegoski’s “The Bad Hour,” Remy Chandler and his dog Marlowe find
evil unleashed in an obedience school.
You’ll need more than an apple to stave off the creatures in these and ten
other stories. Remember your first lesson: resistance is fruitless!

I always love the concept of anthologies such as this (a bunch of short stories that you can take your sweet time getting through). They never seem to keep my interest though and what ends up happening is they end up lying around, forgotten, and I find it weeks later with an inch of dust under my bed. But I can’t resist oohing and aahing over them when they’re first released. 🙂
Shoot, I still have ‘Down These Strange Streets‘ (the last anthology I picked up) on hold… which reminds me, I need to give that another shot. 🙂

What are you Waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know! Feel free to leave your link in the comments section.

    I am incredibly excited about Ilona Andrews' short, and the VSI thing sounds like something we'll both love. I haven't seen this before, thanks, Bonnie!
