Very happy to hear that one of my short stories – PIG THING – has been selected by Ellen Datlow for THE BEST HORROR OF THE YEAR VOLUME 5. The book will be published in June 2013. I don’t write many short stories, but I put a lot of time into the few I do write, so it’s very heart warming and exciting to have one recognised.
Thank you Danel Olson for originally taking this story for EXOTIC GOTHIC 4, and for making some astute suggestions about the ending.
Here’s the full track listing for THE BEST HORROR OF THE YEAR VOL. 5:
