Waiting On Wednesday #20: Under the Vale and Other Tales of Valdemar, by Mercedes Lackey

This is a weekly book meme, hosted by
which features future releases that we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!

Here's my pick for this week!!

Edited by Mercedes Lackey
Trade Paperback, 352 pages
Expected Publication Date: Dec. 6, 2011
Genre: Fantasy

From the Goodreads Synopsis

The Heralds of Valdemar are an ancient order, drawn from all across the land, from all walks of life, and at all ages, these unusual individuals are Gifted with abilities beyond those of normal men and women. They are Mindspeakers, FarSeers, Empaths, ForeSeers, Firestarters, FarSpeakers, and more. Sought and Chosen by mysterious horselike Companions, they are bonded for life to these telepathic, enigmatic creatures. With their Companions, the Heralds of Valdemar ride circuit throughout the kingdom protecting the peace and, when necessary, defending their land and monarch.

Now readers can travel to the world of Valdemar with Tanya Huff, Mickey Zucker Reichert, Fiona Patton, Rosemary Edghill, Judith Tarr, and others in these original stories, including an all-new novella from Mercedes Lackey.

Well, I've never read anything by Mercedes Lackey,
or by any of these other authors, either...
I must admit that
this beautiful cover has inspired me
to check out this book,
because I love horses, especially fantasy ones!!

Besides, I think it's about time
I became closely acquainted with these writers
I've heard so much about!!

What fantastic books are you all
eagerly anticipating this week?
