Congratulations to upcoming Spectral authors Alison J Littlewood (The Eyes of Water) and Simon Bestwick (Cold Harbours) for making the cut in this year’s The Years Best Horror Volume 4, edited by Ellen Datlow. Ellen will also be writing extensively about Spectral’s debut year in her summary, to be published as an introduction to the book. The volume is due to be released this Spring and will be available through all the usual outlets.
MORE good news for Alison – if you’re British, then you will know of Richard and Judy’s Book Club. Alison’s debut novel, A Cold Season (Jo Fletcher Books), has been selected by the club as the Book of the Month for March. Congratulations to Alison for making such enormous strides in her career in so short a time!! The book is launched next week, an event I am looking forward to immensely, plus I am extremely proud to be publishing her chapbook in June this year!!
