Locus Recommended Reading List 2017

Locus’ annual Recommended Reading List in now out for 2017.

The list contains stalwarts like Caitlín R. Kiernan, Charles Stross, M. John Harrison, Angela Slatter, Yoon Ha Lee, Aliette de Bodard, Nina Allan, Adam Nevill, Joe Hill, Sarah Pinsborough, Philip Pullman, Jeff VanderMeer and Elizabeth Bear.

It’s terrific to see work on there by Kelly Robson, JY Yang, Victor LaValle, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Usman T. Malik and Carole Johnstone. (As an aside, check out Issue 60 of Black Static, which contains her novella “Skyshine”- I will be disappointed if it doesn’t make shortlists next year).

I love that the  Locus list also includes Sarah Hall’s “Madame Zero”- one on my favourites of last year. Jeffrey Alan Love is also on the list for his illustrations of “Norse Myths: Tales of Odin, Thor, and Loki” by Kevin Crossley Holland. I think he’s a terrific talent.

I am very grateful to have two stories in the list. “Mercury” (my story from “Mad Hatters and March Hares”) and “The Crow Palace” from “Black Feathers”- an anthology of avian-themed horror edited by Ellen Datlow, which also made the Original Anthology category.

Mad Hatters and March Hares cover art

Mad Hatters and March Hares

Tor have revealed the cover art by Dave McKean for “Mad Hatters and March Hares”, which is out on 5th December 2017. I’m not sure if anybody out there actually reads this blog but I promise that I did NOT know who was doing the art when I blogged two days ago about the Folio edition of “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Dave McKean.

This collection is edited by Ellen Datlow and readers can expect “An all original anthology of stories inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. ‘Alice’ has been read, enjoyed, and savored by generations of children and adults since its publication. It’s hallucinogenic, weird, imaginative and full of wordplay, mathematical puzzles, and political and social satire.”
