On My Wishlist #18

This is a meme from Book Chick City. There are so many books out there that I want to read that this is the only way I can keep track! There's a wolfie theme to my wishlist this week...

Masques - Patricia Briggs
Publisher: Ace Books (September 2010)
When the peaceful kingdom of Reth is overrun by Geofrrey ae'Magi, the evil master of illusion, Aralorn, weaponsmistress of the shapechanging race, and her companion, Wolf, attempt to overthrow him

While I've loved Briggs Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series for a while, I've only recently discovered her traditional fantasy series. This is a reprint of her first ever book and I can't wait to start my way through her back catalogue

Kitty's Big Trouble (Kitty Norville 9) - Carrie Vaughn
Publisher: Gollancz (July 2011)
I know this book isn't due out for a while but I can't wait to see what trouble Kitty's getting into next! There's not much available about the story yet - just that it is set in San Francisco's China town.

Wolfsbane and Mistletoe - Edited by Charlaine Harris & Toni Kelner
Publisher: UK - Gollancz (November 2010)
We all know the holiday season can bring out the beast in anyone - but it's especially hard if you're a lycanthrope! Gathered here together is a veritable feast of fears and tears: fifteen of the scariest, saddest, funniest werewolf tales, by an outstanding pack of authors, best read by the light of the full moon, and with a silver bullet close at hand. In 'Gift Wrap', Sookie Stackhouse is feeling mighty sorry for herself, all alone for Christmas - until she meets someone with bigger problems than loneliness . . . Patricia Briggs gives us the story of lone wolf David Christiansen, who needs to mend fences with his daughter, before it's too late. In 'Christmas Past', Keri Arthur tells the tale of Hannah, who gets an unmerry and potentially life-threatening Christmas present when the hunky werewolf who dumped her last Christmas Eve turns up as her partner on the hunt for a vampire serial killer.

I know this book of short stories came out a while ago in the US but it's just been released in hardback in the UK and I really hope I'll find this in my stocking next week!

So that's what I'm wishing for - what would like this week? :)
