… Not to mention Matthew David Surridge and C.S.E. Cooney

… Not to mention Matthew David Surridge and C.S.E. Cooney

bg-14-cover3Congratulations to James Enge on the inclusion of his latest novel The Wolf Age in the Locus 2010 Recommended Reading List!

This is the second time on the list for James — his first novel, Blood of Ambrose, made the list in 2009.

Both novels feature Morlock the Maker, who appeared in Black Gate 8 in James’ first published story, “Turn Up This Crooked Way.”

Since that first appearance Morlock has been in our pages a half-dozen times. We’re practically his second home — he doesn’t even knock when he drops by anymore.

But that’s not the only reason we’re celebrating the Locus list. Also on the list is Matthew David Surridge’s “The Word of Azrael“, from Black Gate 14, which was recently selected for the upcoming Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy, edited by Richard Horton.

And although she was too modest to mention it in her post below, C.S.E. Cooney’s own story “Braiding the Ghosts“, from the anthology Clockwork Phoenix 3, made the list as well.

[While we’re on the topic, C.S.E. made the list last year too, with “Three Fancies from the Infernal Garden“, from Subterranean magazine, Winter ’09. “Braiding the Ghosts” will also be in Rich’s Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy volume, coming this summer.]

Congratulations to all!

Ah, see! I should’ve just let YOU post about it! You did it better and ALSO knew all about Matthew David Surridge!!!

Oh, well. My intentions were pure. Pure enough. Pure enough to suit my purposes.

Thanks for the mention. “Braiding the Ghosts” seems to be getting a lot of mileage. I blame Mike Allen entirely.

Ack! Apologies to Matthew David Surridge, and “The Word of Azrael“, and Black Gate too, for not catching any of them in that infernal list! Congrats to the lot of ye!

C.S.E. Cooney

Thanks, Mr. Waltz. It was quite a COMPREHENSIVE list!

Dear Johnny Alfred:

I am sullying all my intentions as we speak. Because, after all, the whole point of life is to write truly fine blog posts. Among other things.

And speaking of which… HOW’S YOUR NOVEL COMING???

Open mic next week… Although I can remember if you’re going to be going to Capricon on Thursday night, or just Friday-Sunday. (I’m doing the latter.)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
