Okay “Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
This week my WOW book is an anthology that looks really good. It is called “Sympathy for the Devil”, by various authors. The list of authors includes, but is not limited too, Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Stephen King, Kage Baker, Charles Stross, Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, Kelly Link, China Mieville, and Michael Chabon. Lots of great authors…it sounds like it could be a great anthology.
