I’ve just received news that ‘The Show’ by Priya Sharma, which features in Box of Delights, the horror anthology I edited for Aeon Press, has been chosen by Ellen Datlow for her Best Horror of the Year: Volume 4. It’s due out in May of this year from Night Shade Books. In the meantime, of course, you can purchase a copy of Box of Delights here and read the story, along with a clutch of other excellent stories by the likes of Mike Resnick, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Steve Rasnic Tem, Don D’Ammassa and others. Congratulations, Priya!
About John Kenny
I have had fiction published in Fear the Reaper, Emerald Eye: The Best of Irish Imaginative Fiction, Transtories, The World SF Blog, Revival Literary Journal, First Contact, FTL, Woman’s Way, Jupiter Magazine and several other venues. Currently looking for a publisher for my novel Down and Out.
I was co-editor of Albedo One from 1993 to 2013 and co-administrator of its International Aeon Award for Short Fiction from 2005 to 2013. Previous to that I edited several issues of FTL (1990 – 1992). I’ve also edited Writing4all: The Best of 2009 and Box of Delights, an original horror anthology from Aeon Press Books.
Absolutely FANTASTIC news, John! That’s really great to hear–and well-deserved for all involved. 🙂 Congratulations!
Thanks, Taylor. Let’s hope we start getting a few reviews in and sell more copies of the book. 🙂
I just posted the good news (and a link to the book) in at least ten different writer/reader/horror groups on Facebook this morning. 😉
That’s brilliant, Taylor. Many thanks for taking the time to spread the word. It’s very much appreciated. Is it still morning over there in sunny California? It’s raining here as per usual.
Good news John.
Thanks, Susan. Every bit of publicity helps.
Funny you should ask, as one of our Dublin employees made his first visit to our Hollywood office today. He said, “We get this kind of weather about five days a year.”
It’s currently 76 degrees.
Don’t hate me.
Apologies for the delayed response- thanks again for accepting the story and for th editorial advice!
All the best,
My pleasure, Priya. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to meet you at Bristolcon. Hopefully at some other con in the future or if you’re ever in Dublin. 🙂
Well done, this is great news!
Thanks, David. I’m really proud of this book. 🙂
