The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume 8 Edited by Jonathan Strahan

I am thrilled to bits that “Rag and Bone” is to appear in Jonathan Strahan’s The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy: Volume 8. It’s published by Solaris and will be out in May 2014.

I owe many thanks to Ellen Datlow, Tor and Jonathan Strahan.
