A griffin, a werewolf, a sunbird . . .

These are just some of the fantastical creatures you'll encounter within these pages. From the cockatoucan, whose laugh rearranges an entire kingdom, to the roving shapeless Beast that lurks in a forest, herein is a collection of rare and magnificent species. Each one will thrill, delight, and quite possibly unnerve you.

Selected by master storyteller Neil Gaiman, the sixteen stories in this menagerie will introduce you to a host of strange, wondrous beings that have never existed anyplace but in the richness of the imagination.

With stories from Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones, E. Nesbit, and many more, Unnatural Creatures will benefit the literacy nonprofit 826DC. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
I don't read nearly enough short stories. I've always been more of a novel fan than a lover of anthologies, but I simply cannot wait for this collection of short stories. I mean, they were selected by Neil Gaiman! And the stories deal with supernatural creatures, a favorite subject of mine. Thankfully, I don't have long to wait for its release!

What is everyone else waiting for this week?
