Best of 2016

She Walks in Shadows - Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Paula R. Stiles, Gemma Files, Jilly Dreadful, Arinn Dembo, Eugenie Mora, Ann K. Schwader, Rodopi Sisamis, Angela Slatter, Priya Sridhar, Benjanun Sriduangkaew, Molly Tanzer, Laura Blackwell, E. Catherine Tobler, Mary Turzillo, Valerie Valdes, Wendy

Prominent editor Ellen Datlow has chosen my friend Laura Blackwell's story, "Bitter Perfume," from the woman-authored, Lovecraft-inspired "She Walks In Shadows" anthology as one of her best of 2016 long-listed stories. 


The anthology is getting super reviews, Laura's an awesome writer, and this is a great, well-deserved honor. 


If you like Lovecraft, horror-fantasy, or just plain old good stories, please check it out.
