Whenever Ellen Datlow puts our her long list for Best Horror of the Year, I rush over to see if I made the list. (I imagine quite a few of us do that, right? LOL). Thrilled to see that I made it TWICE this year (which is a first) for “From Within,” in Slave Stories: Scenes from the Slave State AND “White Picket Fences,” in Shadows over Main Street. So many friends and peers on this list as well, congratulations to everyone, but I get a special thrill from those in Exigencies: Bill Johnson for “Searching for Gloria,” Jason Metz for “Single Lens Reflection,” and Letty Ann Trent (who got IN).
