“Bast” places second in prominent reader’s poll

“Bast” placed second in 2011’s Preditors & Editors™ readers’ poll for best horror short story of the year. The ballot contained 53 entries, so I’m especially proud of the story’s showing, and thankful for everyone’s support.

“Bast” appeared in the September 2011 edition of The Horror Zine, which you can read for free here. It was also anthologized alongside the work of Bentley Little, Graham Masterton, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale, Elizabeth Massie, Ronald Malfi, Cheryl K. Tardif, Melanie Tem, Scott Nicholson, Piers Anthony, and Conrad Williams in WHAT FEARS BECOME: An Anthology from the Horror Zine, available at Amazon and Smashwords.

The publisher, Imajin Books, also selected “Bast” for publication in its ebook sampler, Imajin This, which featured chapter samples from each book published by Imajin in 2010 and 2011. The ebook sampler is available for free here.

In addition to those who voted for “Bast,” I also want to thank Horror Zine editor Jeani Rector and assistant editor Dean H. Wild, without whom “Bast” would never have reached its potential, or its many readers.
