Shameless Self Promotion

I'd posted that I was mentioned in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, 2008 Edited by Ellen Datlow and Kelly Link & Gavin J. Grant. Well, it's a little late but I finally tracked down a copy and here are the citations:

High Seas Cthulhu, edited by William Jones (Elder Signs Press), is an anthology of twenty Lovecraftian tales set on the sea. All but one are original and although every story is readable, there isn't enough variety in tone, setting, or style. The more interesting stories are by Matthew Baugh, Tim Curran, John Shire, Stewart Sternberg, Charles P. Zaglanis, and Lee Clark Zumpe.

The other mention was also from something Edited by the very talented William Jones.

Frontier Cthulhu Ancient Horrors in the New World, edited by William Jones (Chaosium), is a pretty good anthology of fifteen Lovecraftian stories taking place in the American West. The best originals are those by Matthew Baugh, Lon Prater, and Jason Andrews.

Didja notice that there's one name in common on both lists? Huh? Didja? Didja?

(Okay, I'll be quiet now.)

As I have a copy of the book, I had already hunted down your name. Kudos.

It's a neat book on every level. I was sorry to hear that this was the last one they'll be publishing.
