Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Guran's pioneering "best of" anthology, the first in a projected series, offers 12 enthralling tales of romance that incorporate supernatural, fantasy or SF elements. A few of these "stories of love and wonder" end with a standard HEA (romance-speak for "happily ever after"), but all avoid cliché. Among the best are Catherine Asaro's "The Shadowed Heart," about a battle-fatigued starfighter pilot; Elizabeth Hand's "Calypso in Berlin," a siren tale about the obsession an immortal nymph-artist feels for her human muse; Claudia O'Keefe's "A Maze of Trees," an eloquent testament to loneliness and sacrifice in an endangered forest; and Delia Sherman's "Walpurgis Afternoon," a whimsical gem concerning a mysterious Victorian home belonging to two witches that appears literally overnight in a middle-class suburb. Other contributors include Jane Yolen, Sandra MacDonald and Elizabeth Bear. In an illuminating introduction, Guran discusses the recent rise of the paranormal romance genre and the attempts to define what it is and isn't. (Apr.)

    one of the best collections I have come across

    Each story has a different paranormal element a merman stranded in the dessert, an ex-socialite becoming the goddess of lonely places, or a star fighter finding healing in love. If you're looking for something paranormal that doesn¿t revolve around vampires or werewolves, these 12 stories fit the bill. 'Best New Paranormal Romance' is more than just romance. These stories will move you, make you smile, or send a thrill down your spine. But while most romances have the traditional happy ending, not every story in this book does. This collection of stories goes beyond romance as defined above. Many of these stories are devastating in their beauty while others leave you with that mushy feeling you get when you have just finished the final page of a happy ending.
