I am eternally grateful to Ellen Datlow for her support of my work and for including my collection in her summary of horror for 2018, published by Locus.
There were a number of notable collections published, including All the Fabulous Beasts by Priya Sharma (Undertow), the long overdue debut of this talented author’s work, featuring 16 stories published since 2006, two of them original. Sharma makes a graceful shift between the fantastic and horror genres, and many of her stories have been included in Best of the Year anthologies. Her novelette “Fabulous Beasts” was nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award and won the British Fantasy Award. Highly recommended.
