Thanks to Paul StJohn Mackintosh for taking the time to read my collection and review it.
British weird fiction writer Priya Sharma has been appearing in numerous year’s best anthologies for some time, and her story, “Fabulous Beasts” (included in this volume of course) was a finalist for a Shirley Jackson Award and won a British Fantasy Award for Short Fiction. Now a first full collection of her short fiction has appeared, from the very wonderful Undertow Publications, with striking covers in both the hardback and paperback edition. It’s no wonder that the volume opens with praise from both Ellen Datlow and Paula Guran, two of the most revered editors and anthologists in the current weird/dark fiction scene. I’m more than happy, then, to report that All the Fabulous Beasts both exceeds expectations, and confounds them.
