Publishers Weekly reviews “All The Fabulous Beasts”

All the Fabulous Beasts

Sharma’s tales are at their strongest and most poignant when they concern love, be it consuming, denied, or realized late. Their magic is usually one surreal piece fitted tightly into a puzzle of normalcy, that often roars up by the end to reshape everything. Sharma leaves tantalizing clues throughout her stories that make the conclusions surprising yet satisfying. Fantasy fans who want their stories deep and intense will consider this a fabulous debut.

Fabulous Beasts in Cross Stitch

Penny's gift.jpg

I went out in the rain to collect a parcel from the Post Office depot this morning. It contained an unexpected gift from fellow writer and friend Penny Jones. It’s a quote from “Fabulous Beasts”.

Thank you, Penny Jones. My eyeliner is all over my face now, but not because of the rain.

The Unheimlich Manoeuvre by Tracy Fahey

The wonderful British Fantasy Award nominated debut collection by Tracy Fahey has been re-released by The Sinister Horror Company.

It’s a very assured first collection. It’s been described as domestic horror but it’s anything but mundane. Even the stories are set abroad have a very claustrophobic quality. Large events that affect whole communities are focused through the microscope of personal interactions, which are beautifully observed. Although there are twists, Tracy Fahey never plays for cheap shocks.

 

I’d recommend going to a panel she’s on if you ever get the chance. She’s entertaining, eloquent and knowledgeable.
