Dark Duets

As a few people might have figured out already, I really kind of dig collaborations. They add a new dimension to working on a project and if you're working with the right person, they are just plain a lot of fun. I ahve been very, very lucky when it comes to the people I've collaborated with, and this is absolutely no exception. 

So, Christopher Golden came up with a delightfully warped notion: take authors that he knows and likes and ask them to work with OTHER authors that he knows and likes, with one proviso: They could never have worked with that other author before. This is the end result:

I am delighted to work with Nate Kenyon on a story. Nate was a wonderful to work with and came up with a truly fun story idea that was great to explore. I am equally delighted to be in a book with all of the following people, because, wow, that's a lot of talent.
