This week, my teaser is from Shadows Over Baker Street edited by Michael Reaves and John Pelan, which is an anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories written by various authors combining Arthur Conan Doyle with H.P. Lovecraft. To be honest, I took it out of the library for one author--Neil Gaiman--whose story "A Study in Emerald" is included. It's quite a good story, and the others I've read are also well-written.
The thorned branches thrust sharply outward like claws, and the whole growth gave one the impression of many black entities congealed into a single one. Each step I took was laborious, each outthrust root a cause for alarm.
-p. 91, "A Case of Royal Blood" by Steven-Elliot Altman
Do you read anthologies? Who's one author you'll hunt down if you discover they've written something new? What are you reading now?
