Ellen Datlow has posted her annual “long list” of honorable mentions (Part 1) (Part 2) selected from the material she read for this year’s edition of The Best Horror of the Year.
I was pleased to discover I earned four this year for stuff I had published in 2012. Ellen gave nods to three poems:
- “Budding” in Phantasmagorium 2 (a short-lived zine edited by horror master Laird Barron)
- “The Duelists” in the July-September issue of Star*Line
- “The Vigil,” dedicated to my buddy Nicole Kornher-Stace, in the Autumn 2012 issue of Goblin Fruit.
And she gave a nod to one story:
I’m also proud to report that poems published in 2012 in Mythic Delirium received nods.
From Issue 26:
- “The Daughter of Lir” by Sandi Leibowitz
- “Scythe-Walk” by Sonya Taaffe
From Issue 27:
- “The Bones of the Girl Muscians” by Sandi Leibowitz
Congratulations to Sandi and Sonya!
