About Nicole Cushing
– Thomas Ligotti, in reference to Children of No One
“(Children of No One is) an absolutely stunning debut novella that will make you cringe, and most importantly will make you think… If you read one debut this year, this should be the one you read.”
Nicole Cushing is an author of dark, weird fiction.
The Black Dog & Leventhal anthology Werewolves & Shapeshifters: Encounters With The Beast Within includes Nicole’s short fiction (alongside stories by Neil Gaiman, George R.R. Martin, Charlaine Harris, and Chuck Palahniuk). Her work also appears in the Cemetery Dance anthology In Laymon’s Terms . Several of her stories have been (or are currently being) adapted for audio presentation on podcasts such as Tales to Terrify, Pseudopod, and Cast Macabre.
In March of 2013, DarkFuse will publish Nicole’s first novella, Children of No One in both signed, limited hardcover and ebook editions.
