Welcome to the wide world of paranormal pastimes, where striking out might strike you dead. Editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner are your announcers for this all-new story collection of the most peculiar plays ever made...
Sports fans live and die by their teams’ successes and failures—though not literally. But these fourteen authors have written spirited—in more ways than one—new tales of killer competitions that would make even the most die-hard players ask to be benched.
In #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s “The Blue Hereafter,” Manfred Bernardo learns about softball from a certain blond barmaid in Louisiana.
Life-and-death stakes make the competition get serious in New York Times bestseller William Kent Krueger’s “Hide and Seek.”
New York Times bestselling author Mercedes Lackey’s “False Knight on the Road” features a high-stakes drag race on a foggy mountain road between a clever young bootlegger and a mysterious stranger.
In New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman’s “Ice,” a young girl learns the true story behind a bit of neighborhood folklore.
New York Times bestseller Seanan McGuire presents “Jammed,” in which a chimera loose during the Roller Derby makes it anyone’s guess as to who will still be skating by the time the buzzer sounds.
In #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson’s “Dreamer,” a game of cops and robbers is a new challenge when the players are able to switch bodies at will.
And New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler follows ghost stomper Hunter Hunterson as he investigates a haunted, never-ending baseball game in “The Case of the Haunted Safeway.”
These and eight more supernatural sporting stories are guaranteed to have you rooting for the home team...or else...

Charlaine Harris is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling fantasy/mystery series featuring Sookie Stackhouse (the basis for the HBO series True Blood), the New York Times bestselling mystery series featuring lightning-struck corpse locator Harper Connelly, and other acclaimed novels.
Toni L. P. Kelner writes the Family Skeleton Mysteries as Leigh Perry and, under her own name, is the author of the “Where Are They Now?” Mysteries and the Laura Fleming series. She has won an Agatha Award and a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, and has been nominated multiple times for the Anthony, the Macavity, and the Derringer awards.
Together, they edited the bestselling anthologies An Apple for the Creature, Death's Excellent Vacation, Home Improvement: Undead Edition, and Wolfsbane and Mistletoe.
Games. They bring out the best in us, the worst in us, the thing-we-never-expected in us. From couch potato games on Wii to computer games like World of Warcraft, from church leagues to the major leagues in baseball, from professional bowling to amateur wrestling, from the pankration event at the ancient Olympics to doing a 360 in a skateboard park, human beings just naturally like to test their limits, both mental and physical.
It's not much of a stretch to imagine that supernaturals like to do the same . . . or that otherworldly elements can enter the field of play.
In our latest anthology, you'll find stories that feature ghostly players, bloodthirsty interruptions, and competitions with deadly outcomes. We warn you: this may put you off gaming for a while.
But we don't think that will last long.
Toni L. P. Keln
