In Under Cover of Darkness, Julie Czerneda and Jana Paniccia have assembled 14 interesting and varied stories with the overarching theme of secret societies. The stories feature traditional secret societies such as the Masons as well as more unusual interpretations of the theme. The collection achieves a nice balance between well-known authors such as Larry Niven, Tanya Huff, and Esther Friesner with not as well known authors such as Stephen Kotowych. From official release/information:
Book Description: Fourteen orignal short stories of secret agents and organizations that have left their mark on time and space... From the true role of the Freemasons to Chronographers who steal pieces of time to an assassin hired by a group that reweaves the threads of history, here are fourteen imaginative tales of time and space and realms beyond our own-all watched over, preserved, or changed by those who work covertly under cover of darkness.
