Dark and Stormy Knights Releases!

The highly anticipated DARK AND STORMY KNIGHTS anthology has finally been released. Contributors include Jim Butcher, Illona Andrews, Carrie Vaughn, Rachel Caine, Vicki Petterrson, Shannon K. Bucther, P.N. Elrod, Lilith Saintcrow and last (but certainly not least!), Deidre Knight!

Here's the scoop on DARK AND STORMY KNIGHTS from Jessica Moyer at Booklist:

Elrod has collected nine original stories by the modern masters of urban fantasy; an anthology that will both thrill fans and serve as a nice introduction to an increasingly popular genre. Several of the stories are set in the authors' series worlds but feature minor characters; Jim Butcher's “Even Hand,” for example, uses the landscape of the Dresden Files series but focuses on Chicago Mob boss Johnny Marcone. Carrie Vaughn's “God's Creatures” features Cormac, who must track down a rogue werewolf. All the stories feature knights of one kind or another, but none is the conventional knight of history. The entire collection is strong, but the two highlights are Rachel Caine's “Even a Rabbit Will Bite,” about two old foes, and Shannon Butcher's “The Beacon,” in which a reluctant hunter must decide the fate of a small girl. With some of the biggest names in urban fantasy contributing stories, this anthology will be an instant hit with fans.

Deidre's story in the anthology:

In "Beknighted," a talented puzzle maker's dreams are haunted by visions of a captive knight. Anna's incessant attempts to solve the intricate puzzle required to free him fail miserably – until a dark patron brings her the key to unlocking her knight's supernatural prison. But freedom comes with a high price, and the cost may be both the lives of Anna and the nameless man who mesmerized her from the shadowy confines of a dream.
