This is still not a year in review post. This is a one-little-bit-of-the-year in review post.
I saw three stories published last year, the most recent of which was "The League of Last Girls." I don't think many people would identify me as a horror writer, but this story is meant to be more about horror (or horror tropes, maybe, specifically the tropes of a certain flavor of horror movies) than it's meant to be actually, y'know, horrifying.
The story was published last month in a book called Aegri Somnia, which can be ordered here as either a trade paperback or as a signed, limited edition hardback. I'm told there's a free shipping dealie going on right now. (You can also order it from a bunch of other places like Amazon and Clarkesworld, and the links to the appropriate pages are helpfully included on that page).
If you'd like a preview of the book, the editors have given in to my whining and posted a copy of my entire story, gratis, on their website. It's not a webpage, though, it's a zipped PDF, so be aware of that before you click on the title below. Please do let me know what you think of it, it's a quick 3500 words or so. The critical reaction (mostly in the horror press) has elicited a higher number of "What's this meant to be?" type reviews than I usually get.
Even higher number, I guess I should say.
