Regarding the series, "The World Is Broken, And The Blacksmith Is Dead", each of the collections consists of a number of short stories.

The Librarian - The gory underbelly of the world of filing. "You get all sorts of people in a library, and the librarian gets it all..." - Terry Pratchett. 68-Year old Anne was such a person. The ones who worked under her loved her dearly. The ones who worked alongside her had the utmost respect for the old Anne. But then there were the ones who Anne had worked for, who feared her. A peculiar thing for a library atmosphere had one not known Anne intimately...
EDGE - Fear, Horror, and Terror. The ordeal of a small girl who'd been abducted, and learns too soon in her young life, that Fear, Horror, and Terror, are by no means the same thing.
I read somewhere that fear SCREAMS. But terror doesn't do that... Terror, whispers.
Baklava - Anarchy. Allesandra, a Greek Intelligence member, has her hands full trying to track down the world's most wanted anarchist, who'd been wrecking utter havoc on a global scale, and who'd decided on a cat-and-mouse game with the top minds in the intelligence world.
