Skipp asked us all to wait until he made the official announcement. Wednesday, he made the official announcement, SO HERE IT IS!

There’s a bit of a long story behind this one (color you shocked, right?), which covers why this tale will be a simultaneous release with its inclusion in PS Publishing’s Nick Cave anthology…but I’ll let Skipp explain himself in the intro. In the meantime, enjoy this ToC. (And then click over here to preorder.)

I want you to look…just look…at this lineup before you ask me why I’m swooning. One, two, ME. *faint*

************************************************************

I can finally announce the TOC for WEREWOLVES AND SHAPESHIFTERS: ENCOUNTERS WITH THE BEAST WITHIN, which Black Dog and Leventhal will be releasing in late September.

I had an incredible time editing this follow-up to ZOMBIES. If anything, it’s more eclectic and wide-ranging, as witness the stories below…

THE COMPANY OF WOLVES – Angela Carter
THE OTHER SIDE – Count Stenbock
THE LADY ON THE GREY – John Collier
GABRIEL-ERNEST — Saki
THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH – H.P. Lovecraft
GRANDFATHER WOLF – Steve Rasnic Tem
FIRE DOG – Joe R. Lansdale
PURE SILVER – A.C. Crispin and Kathleen O’Malley
GIFT-WRAP – Charlaine Harris
SIDE-EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE – Steve Duffy
UNLESS YOU CHANGE – Francesca Lia Block
FORGIVEN – Eric Shapiro
THE COLD THAT FLAYS THE SKIN – Tessa Gratton
IL DONNAIOLO – Brad C. Hodson
WEREWOLF 101 – Mercedes M. Yardley
MANDIBLE – Alice Henderson
FAR AND WEE – Kathe Koja
BRAIDS – Melanie Tem
NOT FROM AROUND HERE – David J. Schow
THE SKIN TRADE – George R.R. Martin
THE ANIMAL ASPECT OF HER MOVEMENT – Adam Golaski
STRANGE SKIN – Bentley Little
BREAK-UP – Richard Christian Matheson
THE BETTER HALF: A LOVE STORY – Scott Bradley and Peter Giglio
PLASTIC FANTASTIC – Dieter Meyer and Maxwell Hart
WARM, IN YOUR COAT – Violet Glaze
ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN PIGGY CLASS – Nicole Cushing
HOWL OF THE SHEEP – Cody Goodfellow
PIECES OF ETHAN – Adam-Troy Castro
I COVET ALL THE WANING HOURS – Zak Jarvis
WHEN SUSSURUS STIRS – Jeremy Robert Johnson
WAR PIG – Carlton Mellick III
DISSERTATION – Chuck Palahniuk
ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD AGAIN – Neil Gaiman
SWEETHEART COME – Alethea Kontis

35 stories, 18 of them original (including the Bentley Little), in 640 pages, with essays by yours truly and informative appendices on shapeshifting history and popular culture. A zesty blend of big shots and unknowns, including four authors who had never published fiction before. Plus lots and lots of amazing stories by women, for those who keep track of such things.

I love this book. You heard it here first!

Yer pal,
Skipp
