Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year – Honourable Mentions

Ellen Datlow has just published the full list of her Honourable Mentions for Best New Horror of the Year and I’m very pleased to see two stories of mine included:

  • “Monsters Among Us” (Macabre, Brimstone Press)
  • “We All Fall Down” (Aurealis #44)

It’s an impressive tally of stories and one that makes for a most daunting reading list. And it’s also great to see so many Australian writers included — including the horrifyingly brilliant Angela Slatter, who has garnered no less than ten HMs, mostly from her gorgeous collection of reloaded fairy tales, Sourdough. (Have you bought this book yet? No? Really? Really?)

The full list lives here (A-K) and here (K-Z).  Ellen Datlow’s Best New Horror of the Year Vol.3 will be published by Nightshade Books in June 2011.
