THE GHOST IS THE MACHINE tops P&E readers poll for anthology of the year.

THE GHOST IS THE MACHINE, featuring my story, “The Talent’s in the Bones,” has placed first in the Preditors & Editors™ readers’ poll for best anthology of 2012. GHOST, edited by Patrick Scalisi, also includes “Scheherazade’s Typewriter,” a story from Bram Stoker-award winner Joe Hill and Rob Smales’s “Photo Finish,” which finished first in the poll’s horror short story category.

The book has received a positive review from THE HORROR ZINE, in which Kristen Houghton says:

THE GHOST IS THE MACHINE is an anthology that will quickly satisfy your reader hunger for horror stories that have a nicely sculpted beginning, middle, and end. They’re filled with all the fears and thoughts that seem to come to mind in the middle of a sleepless night. It’s guaranteed that you will never look at a ‘mindless’ machine in the same way again.

With contributions like these, it’s easy to see why:

  • J. David Anderson (“The Voice in the Box”)
  • Anton Cancre (“Interchangeable Parts”)
  • Kenneth W. Cain (“Rebirth”)
  • Gloria Weber (“Eternal Service”)
  • Joe Hill (“Scheherazade’s Typewriter”)
  • Christian A. Larsen (“The Talent’s in the Bones”)
  • Rose Blackthorn (“Eidiss”)
  • Jonathan Templar (“Love the Ride”)
  • Doug MacKensie (“The Iron Prophet”)
  • Eric J. Guignard (“The Ghost of Ozzie Hobbs”)
  • Kristopher Triana (“Video Express”)
  • Matthew Alan Hughes (“Bad Toys”)
  • Rob Smales (“Photo Finish”)
  • Jay Wilburn (“Watch”)
  • Alexis A. Hunter (“Afterimage”)

The publisher of THE GHOST IS THE MACHINE, Post Mortem Press, is the publisher of my upcoming novel, LOSING TOUCH, which will feature a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony, and will debut at the Bram Stoker Award™ Weekend, incorporating World Horror Convention 2013, in New Orleans, Louisiana in June.
