Great news that Wolf Alice (named for Angela Carter) recently won the Mercury Music Prize.
“She” and “Blush” are from their 2013 EP.
New Fears 2 is out now from Titan. It’s non-themed anthology edited by Mark Morris that reflects the diversity of work that appears under the horror banner. I loved New Fears and am proud to be included in New Fears 2 alongside some truly awesome writers.

I was lucky enough to see KT Tunstall live a few years ago in Liverpool, where she performed this gorgeous song.
I am thrilled to bits that “All the Fabulous Beasts” has been review by John Langan for the Sept 2018 issue of Locus magazine.
This issue includes features interviews with Kelly Robson and Rebecca Roanhorse; obituaries for Michael Scott Rohan and Gerald M. Weinberg; a column by Cory Doctorow; the Hugo, Retro-Hugo, Mythopoeic, Chesley, and Sidewise awards winners; Worldcon & NASFiC Site Selection news; US and British Forthcoming Books; a spotlight on Jason Kirk of 47North; George R.R. Martin in Conversation with John Picacio; and reviews of short fiction and books by Sonya Taaffe, Dave Hutchinson, Deborah Harkness, Janeen Webb, and many others.
Priya Sharma’s stories are indeed fabulous beasts, chimeras composed of the fantastic and deeply human, bound together by sinewy sentences, their strange hearts richly alive. The chorus of their animal mouths announces the arrival of a major voice.
This issue features:
Alexandra Seidel, Indrapramit Das, Damien Krsteski, Dennis Mombauer, Sarah M. Prindle, Bhushita Vasistha, Rahad Abir, Rajendra Shepherd, Alexandria Baisden, Yuan Changming, F.J. Bergmann, D.A. Xiaolin Spires, Lawdenmarc Decamora, Sarah Ang, Julie Novakova
