I’ve finally gotten around to adding an Anthology page to the bibliography here on gorelets.com, and though it’s still rudimentary I plan to update it with links and images and more. In the mean time, I wanted to share a few updates about recent anthology appearances, in case you missed the news from the latest issue of The Goreletter.
One of the books coming out this month is Drawn to Marvel: Poems from the Comic Books from Minor Arcana Press. I’m really excited to be in this one, as it features a number of really impressive poets to write about a topic you rarely, if ever see given the literary treatment. It’s one of a kind, featuring Bryan D. Dietrich, Jeannine Hall Gailey, Evan J. Peterson, and many others. I’ve got three poems in it, including “Sister Superman,” which I shared at a number of readings last year, and plan to read at the Sneak Preview event at the AWP Conference in Seattle at the end of February.
The anthology, Horror Library Vol. 5, is currently listed on the Preliminary Ballot for the Bram Stoker Award for Best Anthology! Pick up this wide-ranging sampler of original horror by new visionaries and veteran voices in the genre, to see why it’s being celebrated. I’m proud of my zombie story, “Pillars of Light,” in its pages. Contributors you might recognize include Bentley Little, Jeff Strand, Ray Garton, Kristin Dearborn, Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Anne Michaud, and many others.
You can watch the new Anthology page as it develops, to learn of others that have come out over the past few years, and a few expected to come out shortly, including an unique non-fiction book for horror authors who want to take the next step in their careers, called Horror 101.
