Library JournalThree of the four stories in this companion to Armstrong's "Womenof the Otherworld" series (
Living with the Dead
) were first publishedas free fiction on Armstrong's web site (www.kelleyarmstrong.com)both as a thank you to her loyal readers and in response to readerrequests for back stories of several of the key werewolf men in hernovels. Armstrong is donating all proceeds from this and a plannedsecond volume in 2010 to World Literacy of Canada. Kudos to her forso generously providing these stories, first to her fans and now as asecond gift to a worthy literary cause. While fans of the series will beeager to devour the stories, those unfamiliar with "Otherworld" willbe somewhat lost as to their significance.
