This bundle includes: Unnatural Worlds, Hex in the City, and Fantasy Adrift.
From a funeral procession in Asia to an ancestral estate deep in the heart of a vaguely Victorian forest to a carriage accident in the vast universe of The Runelords, Unnatural Worlds takes readers on a journey to the far side of the imagination. Funny, heartbreaking, frightening, but most importantly, memorable, the original stories in this anthology go places few writers dare reach. Unnatural Worlds marks the perfect start to this brand-new anthology series.

Hex in the City
Urban fantasy offers a diverse playground for some extremely powerful stories. Professional writer and editor Kerrie L. Hughes pulled some fantastic tales out of fourteen top writers for this fifth installment of Fiction River. Set in urban lands from modern Portland, to a future Detroit, to a wild Washington, D.C., and ending the tour in London, these top writers take the idea of “Hex” and stretch and twist it into stories with a magickal grip on the imagination.
Edited by: Kerrie L. Hughes. Original stories by: Jay Lake, Lisa Silverthorne, Nancy Holder, Lee Allred, Stephanie Writt, Seanan McGuire, Anthea Sharp, Dayle A. Dermatis, Dean Wesley Smith, Annie Reed, Jeanne C. Stein, Leah Cutter, Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
From fairy tales fractured into unrecognizability to Russian mobsters hanging out with zombies, from New World slavery to modern Alaskan cruise ships, the stories in Fantasy Adrift sail across the genre. Two writers make their fiction debuts next to bestsellers Steve Perry and Dean Wesley Smith to take readers on a journey of the imagination—as only Fiction River can do.
