Women in Horror 2013

It’s Imblog today, the traditional start of Spring in Ireland, and it’s sunny too – a welcome break from the recent fierce squalls.

It’s also the start of Women in Horror Recognition Month, which I’ve discussed before on my blog.

Two years ago I wrote a piece for the fabulous Bad Reputation web site in which I recommended five women horror novelists. This year they asked me to contribute again, and this time I’ve chosen to highlight the work of women from across the horror media spectrum. It’s a personal pick of women who are doing interesting work in the field, and of course there are so many more.

Today is also the official publication date of Twisted Fairy Tales, so it’s a happy day for me. Amazon began shipping the book early, and a number of people have already received their copies. I loved seeing the pictures people posted online, or sent me, of the book when it arrived in their homes.

Many thanks to all of you who have bought the book already. I hope you enjoy the stories!
