Ellen Datlow’s Year’s Best Honourable Mentions long list

I’m all happy again. It’s such an honour when people you respect give kudos to your work. It was great to read on Monday that Liz Grzyb and Talie Helene, editors of Ticonderoga Publications’ Year’s Best Australian Fantasy & Horror, mentioned four of my stories on their Recommended Reading List (not to mention that they are also including “Tiny Lives” as a Year’s Best reprint in the book itself). And then today I discover that the Grand Empress of Horror herself, Ellen Datlow, has mentioned two of my stories on her long list of Honourable Mentions for The Best Horror of the Year, volume 5.

The Year’s Best Australian Fantasy & Horror mentions were:

“Cephalopoda Obsessia”, Bloodstones anthology.
“Crossroads and Carousels”, The Red Penny Papers. (Free to read online)
“Fear is the Sin”, From Stage Door Shadows anthology.
“Burning, Always Burning”, with Felicity Dowker, Damnation and Dames anthology.

And Ellen Datlow’s mentions were:

“The Goodbye Message”, Ticon 4

and

“Burning, Always Burning”, with Felicity Dowker, Damnation and Dames anthology.

Particularly good to see “Burning, Always Burning” get a mention both times.

You can see the full and extensive list on Ellen’s livejournal. Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here.
