Little Black Spots are Showing Up in Plenty of Best of Year Lists!

The end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 are bringing out reviewers’ Best of lists for the year, and luckily enough Little Black Spots and some of the individual stories within it are making plenty of these lists.  I thought I’d update the six or so of you who read this.

First the venerable spec fiction site Tangent Online (which, incidentally gave Little Black Spots a very nice review) chose two of the stories for inclusion in its 2018 Recommended Reading List.  The stories are “A Kiss From the Sun for Pardon” and “Gethsemane, In Rain.”  Go here to see the entire list.

Next, Little Black Spots made the Best of 2018 lists from the following reviewers/review sites so far.  I’ll update this as more come in.

Mother Horror (Sadie Hartmann)

Zakk at The Eyes of Madness

And a few of my stories have made the Recommended Reading List for the Horror Writers Association’s Bram Stoker Award. (Now, this doesn’t mean they’re nominated or anything, so I don’t mean to imply that, but it is the first step in the process.)  Little Black Spots has made it onto the Recommended Reading List for fiction collection.  The story “Purple Soda Hand” is on the list for Long Fiction, while “The Bunny Suit” and “A Winter’s Tale” are both on the list for Short Fiction.

If you want to take a look see at what all the fuss is about, go pick up a copy here.

And don’t forget, my epic novel THE FEARING is coming in April.  Some big news soon.
