which yes, I am still very much working on
A collection I've really enjoyed:
No Further Messages by Brett Alexander Savory (Delirium Books) demonstrates the maturation of a fine writer whose short fiction keep getting better and better. Three of the twenty-one stories are original to the collection and one was reprinted in YBFH#20. It is Book 9 in the Delirium Exclusive series. The good-looking jacket art is by Michael Gibbs.
An all original anthology I've just finished reading:
Strange Tales Volume II edited by Rosalie Parker (Tartarus Press) is the worthy follow-up to the World Fantasy Award winning volume of supernatural and psychological horror fiction. The wide-ranging original seventeen stories are all readable but the strongest are by Elizabeth Brown, Adam Golaski, Christopher Harman, Stephen Holman, Joel Knight, Don Tumasonis (under the pseudonym Hilbourne Carlone), A.G. Slatter, with a very good novella by David Rix.
