Thu, 20 May 2010 year’s best

Year's Best Dark Fantasy & Horror 2010Horror editor Paula Guran has announced the Table of Contents for the Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror 2010, which is being published by Prime Books in October.

I’m delighted to confirm that my short story “Vic” has been selected for the anthology.

“Vic” was first published in Black Static, issue 10, so a big thank you to editor Andy Cox for taking a chance with the story.

It’s a thrill to see my story listed in the company of so many writers whose work I admire.

The anthology will be 500+ pages featuring 38 stories (about 250,000 words) so there will be plenty to read. Quite appropriately the volume will be dedicated to Ellen Datlow.

The cover has not been finalised yet, but this is the current image.
