CHIRAL MAD tops London Book Festival’s compilations & anthologies

CHIRAL MAD wins another laurel.

CHIRAL MAD wins another laurel.

The accolades keep coming for CHIRAL MAD, featuring my short story, “Mirror Moments.” The anthology, edited by Michael Bailey, has won the award for compilations and anthologies at the 2012 London Book Festival. Earlier this year, the anthology from Written Backwards received honorable mention in the Halloween Book Fest Awards held in Hollywood, California.

As had been previously announced on this site, CHIRAL MAD was an award finalist in two categories (Best Cover Design: Fiction, and Fiction: Anthologies) for the 2012 USA Best Book Awards. And the book is up for Anthology of the Year by This is Horror. The polls close January 4, and you can cast your ballot simply by emailing your top two choices to awards@thisishorror.co.uk.

CHIRAL MAD is making the rounds, turning up in countries as far from my home as Finland, Australia, and South Africa. I am proud to be associated with this book for so many reasons (the cover design and editing by Michael Bailey, the marquee authors, and the other relative newcomers who’ve made it such a terrific read), but I think I’m most proud of the fact that since its release, CHIRAL MAD has raised over $3000 for Down’s syndrome charities. A great book. A great cause.
