Noting a Notable Shout-Out

Ellen Datlow, who edits - well, just about everything it sometimes seems - has posted a list of eight notable story collections from 2009. And she has listed Monstrous Affections, my own little bag of stories, as one of them.

Here's what she said, from her Best Horror of the Year round-up, and the post:

Monstrous Affections by David Nickle (Chizine Publications) is this Canadian’s first collection, although the stories in it were originally published between 1994 and 2009. That story from 1994, “The Sloan Men,” was chosen for the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror: Sixth Annual Collection. Michael Rowe provides an introduction to a powerful collection.
She also shouted-out collections by Barbara Roden, Reggie Oliver, Simon Strantzas, Simon Bestwick, Gerard Houarner, R.B. Russell and Ralph Robert Moore.

But they can link to their own collections. Here's where to get mine.

Good luck, David, with the nomination for the World Fantasy Award. You'll of course understand why I don't hope you'll win...

Thank you Simon. I'm a long way from the WFA nomination yet, though. Aren't I? Do you know something I don't?

David Nickle said...

Ah. You don't know anything I don't know. Well good luck back at you. (just not as good luck as mine, please)

Exactly. The point of Ellen's post was to remind the WFA judges it seems of all the great talent that should be considered. Obviously I understand why my book is in the list, but ...

Anyway, fingers crossed for us both!
