For the Tanya Huff fans, she has an e book collection of short stories out:  Nights of the Round Table.

Also her 2nd of the Gale family is out-The Wild Ways.  My copy is on the way from Amazon.

This might sound cruel but I REALLY hope she got someone to edit the stories in the collection before re-publication. 

I've read all but one of these stories before in her other collections.  About half of the stories are collected in Finding Magic which I doubt had any editing whatsoever.  There were all sorts of things that should have been caught even on a casual skim like misspelling characters names, wrong words being used (like she misspelled something and spell-check picked the wrong correction and no one noticed), missing punctuation, etc.  Half of the stories were in Relative Magic, which wasn't quite as bad but still had more typos than normal.  There's some great stories in the collection but for her sake, I hope the publisher got someone to proofread them this time!
