Three Stories Make Datlow’s BEST HORROR Honorable Mention List
Color me pleasantly surprised. My work has (for the first time, ever) made Ellen Datlow’s Honorable Mention list for Best Horror of the Year.
Hell, color me triply-surprised: three of my stories (“The Fourteenth”, “A Catechism for Aspiring Amnesiacs” and “The Meaning”) made the list. Two of these tales were written in second person p.o.v. The other one is a post-modern piece presented as though it’s an entry in a guide to obscure cinema. Nice to see recognition for work that’s a wee bit off the beaten path.
Congrats to the (many) other authors who appear on the list. It’s a blast to share this exciting development with so many friends who are also able to celebrate it. Super-congrats to those authors with works appearing on the short Honorable Mention list previously announced in April. Those authors will have their names and the titles of their stories listed in the back of Best Horror of the Year 5.
