Abominations Rocks!

I received my contributor’s copy of Abominations last week and it made me -so- happy, you can’t imagine. Allow me to tell you some of the reasons I, quite literally, went ‘squee!’ when I got it. In no particular order:

  • The cover is amazing. Amazing. Bart Willard is one talented artist.
  • The front cover has a quote from Nate Kenyon saying, “…a knockout collection from some very talented writers.” I’m one of those writers. Wheee!
  • My story, Spoiled Picnic, is one of the stories blurbed on the back cover.
  • Spoiled Picnic is the very first story in the anthology. The first one. That, hopefully, means that everyone who buys the book will read my story first. How cool is that?

So yes, I was blown away by Abominations before I even started reading, but now that I’ve devoured it, from cover to cover, I love it even more. Every author’s take on the idea of Abominations was unique and interesting. I think my two favorite stories were ‘WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY CHARLES?’ by John Teehan and ‘STARVELITO’ by Lon Prater. Both of them are absolutely brilliant.

If you haven’t done it already and you like horror stories, you really ought to pick up a copy of Abominations, and trust me when I say I’d tell you that even if my own story wasn’t in it. Really. It’s a killer book 🙂

The Dark Phantom Review is a great little blog that does book reviews, author interviews and editor reviews. In addition, they also have articles and short fiction. It’s run by Mayra Calvani, who is a talented writer. Recently I was honored to be interviewed by The Dark Phantom Review, and the interview is live now.
