Oh how I love giving away short stories! These always seem to be my most popular contests so it's great when I get a decent stash of short story compilations to pass on. This contest includes: Witch High; Move over Hogwarts... High school is different for everyone. For some, it’s a time to shine, and for others, a time to survive. Then there are the students who attend those special schools for the gifted. But what if there was a school that catered to those rarest of students—those who can do magic? These fourteen tales explore the challenges that students of the magical arts may face in a high school of their very own. If you think chemistry is tough, try alchemy. If you ever fell victim to a school bully, how would you deal with a bully gifted with powerful magic? And if you needed more time to study, what spell could give you all the time you desired? These are just a few of the magical adventures that will await you when you enter Salem Township Public High School #4— otherwise known as Witch High... Better Off Undead; Eighteen original stories about the “lives” of the undead From vampires to mummy con artists, this lively collection explores the many forms the undead can take in stories that range from the chilling to the hysterical. There are those who people the Afterlife, others who wander the lands of the living in ghostly form, and even those who walk about in the flesh. For anyone who’s ever wondered if the grass is greener on the other side of this mortal coil, this collection will provide a wide range of intriguing answers from those who are undead...and loving it! And Moving Targets: And Other Tales of Valdemar; Sixteen original stories-set in Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar universe Includes a new novella by Mercedes Lackey!
