Gabino Iglesias at HorrorTalk Picks Little Deaths as the No. 1 Horror Collection of 2012!

Little Deaths Cover


Gabino Iglesias, voracious reader and reviewer over at HorrorTalk, recently posted his list of the best horror books of 2012.  He just Tweeted his posting of the list, so imagine my surprise when I saw that he’d chosen my collection Little Deaths as the No. 1 Collection/Anthology of the year!  (OK, I tied with We Live Inside You by Jeremy Robert Johnson, but who cares?  That’s good company!)

Here’s what Gabino had to say:  Little Deaths is a treat for fans of horror. Taff’s prose is tight but malleable, changing its nature to adapt to every story. The diversity of the collection is outstanding, the writing is the kind that gets nods for the Stoker, and all the elements of horror fiction are there in spades. The Mellified Man was one of the best short stories I read this year and this collection ensured that I will be getting my hands on anything Taff publishes the second it comes out. When it comes to superb short horror stories, this tome stuck with me and I’ll surely go back to it at some point in 2013.”

Wow…just…wow…I am flattered and humbled.  Go here to see all of the great books Gabino has on his list.  And go here to pick up a copy of Little Deaths…still, for some reason, at the holiday, priced-to-move cost of just 99 cents!

    Just finished Little Deaths. I’d say it’s my favorite of 2012. A shame it didn’t make the final ballot. I thought it deserved to. I’ll definitely be writing a positive review on Amazon.

      Thanks, Adrian! That means a lot to me. Yeah, I wish it had made it to the ballot, but that’s OK. I didn’t write it to win a Stoker. And it’s received some great reviews from people I respect. So, next time! Thanks for the Amazon review, too!
