She Walks In Shadows – World Fantasy Award!


Just a quick note to say that She Walks In Shadows, the anthology in which my short story “Magna Mater” first appeared last October, has been nominated for a World Fantasy Award.

The 2016 World Fantasy Award Nominees were announced today by Locus Magazine. Competing for the 2016 award for best anthology are

  • The Doll Collection, Ellen Datlow, ed. (Tor)
  • Black Wings IV, S.T. Joshi, ed. (PS)
  • She Walks in Shadows, Silvia Moreno-Garcia & Paula R. Stiles, eds. (Innsmouth Free Press)
  • Cassilda’s Song, Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., ed. (Chaosium)
  • Aickman’s Heirs, Simon Strantzas, ed. (Undertow)

Seeing the list makes me sad that I was unable to complete the story I was working on for Pulver’s anthology! This was a project dedicated to female authors within the King In Yellow mythos. I was invited to submit, but sadly for one reason and another I couldn’t make the deadline–too much turmoil in my personal life, which has been a problem for a few years now.

I’ve written two stories which touch upon that tradition, once for Delta Green: Dark Theatres and more recently for an upcoming Paizo Publishing project. It would be fun to have a story like that in an award-nominated project!

Ah well. It is extremely nice to see the great editors at Innsmouth Free Press get the recognition they deserve, and a chance to compete with wonderful editors like Datlow,  Joshi, Pulver, and Stranzas. And naturally it is nice to be part of a project which is deemed award-worthy.

Please wish Innsmouth (and me)  good luck.
