And here we are in September – and what a strange summer it’s been (also double impeachments on the horizon, maybe, so yay!)
While I’m up to a great many projects (so! many!) that are still bubbling and can’t be announced yet, I still managed to get some things out into the world!
Over on the Fox Spirit Books blog I’ve got a couple of listicle posts as part of their celebration of Tens:
Check out 10 Archaeologists to Dig for cool lady archaeologists and, my favourite thing, 10 Lost City Breaks for the ultimate travel guide to legendary cities. I also put together the Fox Spirit Summer Sampler (which I can’t now find a download link for, but it was fab, of course!)
In other news, I’m a juror for the BFS Awards Best Magazine/Periodical category this year and we’ve just delivered our verdict to the boss – the awards will be announced in full at the BFS Awards ceremony at Fantasycon in Glasgow 18th – 20th October. All I’ll say is that it was fun to catch up on old favourites and discover new to me things…
Oh! And! Much excite! My story in the Alchemy Press Book of Horrors – ‘Down Along the Backroads’ – made the Honourable Mentions list in Ellen Datlow’s just released The Best Horror of the Year Volume Eleven. This is the first time I’ve ever been in such a thing so happy dancing all round. Ellen! Datlow! Y’all!
