Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year 4

Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year 4 is now out and contains some fantastic stories. I feel very proud and fortunate to be included alongside Stephen King, Peter Straub, Margo Lanagan, Laird Barron, Alison Littlewood and Simon Bestwick, among others.  Full TOC.
My story, “The Show”, originally appeared in John Kenny’s Box of Delights. Aeon Press have just released Kindle editions of this (containing work by Mike Resnik, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Erin Pringle, Robert Neilson and Steve Rasnic Tem, among others) and Colin Harvey’s Transtories (which includes work by Aliette de Bodard, Sharon K. Reamer, Rob Rowntree, Joanne Hall and John Kenny, as well as my story, “The Carbon Cyborg”.)

I’m also very pleased that Albedo One have accepted “Fish Skins”, a story that’s very personal to me.
In Ellen Datlow’s summation of 2011 she gave a very positive mention to Issue XV of Dark Tales. Congratulations to editor Sean Jeffery and the writers she mentioned- Sally Quilford, Richard Smith, Bruce Currie, Kate Meason, Benjamin Mitchell and the very brilliant Georgina Bruce.

    ‘The Show’ was cracking, genuinely creepy stuff and very authentic considering shows like Most Haunted. Brilliant.

  2. Thanks very much Ray! Hope all’s well with you.

    Talent will always out Ms Sharma. Your stories never fail to draw me in, the characters absorb me and the narrative carry me through some creepily vivid imagery…you deserve to be on the contents page. Well done.
