The Devil's School lies down this way. Lot's wife knows your name. Hearts hang in the scales, flesh and clay are one and the same, and the severed head of Orpheus sings in winter waves. In award-winning poet Sonya Taaffe's first collection of short fiction, the boundaries between worlds dissolve to reveal unmasked harlequins and women made of stars, serpentine plagues and New England storm gods, and many other denizens of the spaces between. These songs of innocence and experience, Blake never knew.
It’s the epic battle of brains against manes. Which side are you on? It’s a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn? This all-original anthology edited by Holly Black (Team Unicorn) and Justine Larbalestier (Team Zombie) makes strong arguments for both sides in the form of spectacular short stories. Half of the stories portray the strengths—for good and evil—of unicorns, and half show the good (and really, really badass) side of zombies. Contributors include many bestselling authors, including Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Meg Cabot, Scott Westerfeld, and Margo Lanagan. This anthology will have everyone asking: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?
"Something's Alive In There!" She was just a little girl, with a tiny horn in the center of her forehead, funny-looking feet, beautiful silver hair, and several curious powers: the ability to purify air and water, make plants grow, and heal scars and broken bones. A trio of grizzled prospectors found her drifting in an escape pod amid the asteroids, adopted her, and took her to the bandit planet Kezdet, a place where no questions are asked and the girl might grow up free. But Kezdet has its own dark secret. The prosperity of the planet is based on a hideous trade in child slave labor, administered by "The Piper" -- a mystery man with special plans for Acorna and her powers. But free little girls have a way of growing into freedom-loving young women, and Acorna has special plans all her own. . .
The blue unicorn is one of the last surviving members of the Tribe of Metal Horned Unicorns. Once, hundreds of their ancestors came to MarBryn to share their magic and learn from the natives. Something went wrong with their space-time craft. They were stranded. Many were slain by Magh, a sorcerer who uses unicorn horns and hooves in his spells and potions. Now, centuries later, there are only twelve unicorns left. They no longer have the technical skills or knowledge required to travel through space-time. One of them doesn't even have a metal horn. . .nor does he posses any magic. Yet, the Moon-Star Numen prophesized that the blue unicorn will be the one to save the tribe and bring the survivors back home to Unimaise. The others don't have much faith in Blue but he has an adventurous spirit and good old common sense so he takes on the challenge alone. He is soon joined by his mentor Gaiso, the Stag and his friend, Girasol the Firebird. Together, the companions save a Humongous Elutron from the Bugans and they rescue Gwyn the Pendragon from Yegwa, an evil spirit. Meanwhile, the rest of Blue's tribe has learned that all horns will be required to meet horn tip to horn tip in order for Blue to receive the Numen's magic. They race toward Muzika Wood in a desperate bid to reach him before the Moon-Star arrives. In their travels, they barely escape Magh's city of Kudos with their lives. One unicorn is nearly gummed to death by a Blind Blober in the Caulis Caverns. With misadventures all around, will destiny prevail?This condensed picture book version of the Blue Unicorn's Journey To Osm is meant to introduce middle graders to the epic story of the Blue Unicorn and the Tribe of Metal Horned Unicorns. This rendition is presented in chapter book style in order to keep young reader's interest. Readers will follow the Blue Unicorn through the land of MarBryn as he seeks to meet the destiny the Moon-Star Numen has set for him in Muzika Woods.

Applauded for her unique ability to blend romance, history, and the wonders of the paranormal into unforgettable novels, Tracy Fobes has taken her flair for the otherworldly to the Scottish Highlands, where a mysterious beauty discovers her true identity. The villagers think her one of the fairy-folk, for she was found wandering the Highlands at the age of four, able to communicate with the creatures of the moors. Now eighteen, Sarah quietly uses her gift to heal wounded animals. But when word of the lovely changeling spreads, her peaceful existence is shattered. Convinced Sarah is his long-lost daughter, the powerful Duke of Argyll offers to bequeath her his estate if she will but take her place in society. Her first duty is to become a lady -- under the tutelage of the duke's erstwhile heir, the dangerously provocative Earl of Cawdor. Sarah savors the simmering passions the cynical earl arouses in her even as she suspects he is merely using seduction to secure his birthright. In this civilized world where desire and deception are one and the same, how can she ever trust in love?
Sandy Blunt, witch, has big dreams but C-average magic skills. Her only noteworthy talent is for paying extravagant compliments to women. Trouble is, when she uses that gift, she unwittingly foretells the future for a pretty princess. The punishment for prophesying about one of royal blood is death. With the help of ill-assorted companions, including a self-professed princess in disguise with a wild imagination, a self-absorbed member of the royal guard, and the not-so-average girl next door, Sandy has a year and a day to travel to far-flung places--encountering such dangerous creatures as a dragon who writes awful poetry, slovely elves, and boarding house landladies--to collect the weird and magical items needed to turn her prophecies into promises and so evade the executioner.
