Acclaimed editor Al Sarrantonio has just announced a forthcoming project. Entitled PORTENTS, the book features stories in the ‘quiet horror’ vein. Among the tales, you’ll find my contribution “Forced Entry”, about an elderly woman resisting the pressure to move from a neighborhood gone bad.
— From Al Sarrantonio.com:
“Coming soon, a new original anthology from a new type of publisher: Portents, edited by “Master Anthologist” (Booklist) Al Sarrantonio, editor of acclaimed collections 999: New Stories of Horror and the Supernatural, Redshift: Extremes of Speculative Fiction, Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy, and Stories (with Neil Gaiman).
In the tradition of Charles L. Grant’s Shadows series, Portents will present 19 brand-new tales from some of today’s most accomplished dark fantasy writers, including Joyce Carol Oates, Gene Wolfe, Joe R. Lansdale, Jeffrey Ford, Ramsey Campbell and Christopher Fowler.
Issued in a strictly limited edition of 1,000 copies, each signed and hand-numbered by Al Sarrantonio himself, and with a beautiful color cover by Alan Clark and a foreword by the distinguished Stephen Jones, Portents will only be available for purchase online from the publisher, Flying Fox Press.
Portents is sure to sell out quickly, and, since it will be the first book ever published by Flying Fox Press, will become an instant collector’s item. Please watch this space for updates, and for information on how to reserve or purchase your copy at an extremely reasonable price.”
