The Best New Horror of the Year Volume Four

August 3, 2012

Hey, I rate a mention in the introduction because of a story I had in the British Fantasy Society Journal last year. Neat.

Ellen Datlow’s annual anthology represents the best in horror fiction and you should buy it if you’ve got any interest at all in the genre. And I’m not just saying that because I’m biased in any way. Look at the contributors to this volume if you don’t believe me.

I’ll have a few reviews in this unless I’m very much mistaken. Available mid-to-late June — join the BFS and get your copy. Or not. It’s a free world, at least when it comes to things like this.

It already has a thread on the BFS forum.
