Yes, it’s January 2nd here at GMR, and as I promised yesterday, we have more to keep you occupied on those long evenings.
First, Brian Lumley’s The Fly-By-Nights, a slightly different take on vampires.
And as long as we’re looking at vampires, we have Jeaniene Frost’s One Grave at a Time, in which the heroes are not only vampires, they’re married vampires.
With Richelle Mead’s Succubus Revealed, we shift slightly from horror to a sort of urban fantasy/supernatural romance, starring — yes, you guessed it — a succubus.
From Peter S. Beagle and Joe. R. Lansdake we have The Urban Fantasy Anthology — which has sections on Mythic Fiction, Paranormal Romance, and Noir Fantasy, so you see, it fits right into our other offerings today.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that our list is full of creatures that aren’t quite human, if at all. Well, to add to that, we have A Field Guide to Irish Fairies from Bob Curran and Andrew Whitson. Brief, but very informative.
And to wrap it all up, a compendium of all things Irish — well, mythically Irish, at least: Daithi Ó hÓgáin’s The Lore of Ireland: An Encyclopedia of Myth, Legend and Romance, which is about as exhaustive as you could wish.
And I notice that there’s a lot more in the bin — looks like our reviewers have been busy, so we’ll be back with more.
