Very cool, congrats! That's a lot of stories, is it flash?

Cate- Mine too. At least a hardcover copy.

Aaron- I am anxious to see that part as well.

Mary- I agree.

Scott, I look forward to reading your story.

I'm not a bit surprised your story is about death. :) Very nice lineup, and the illustrations thing is cool!

Ooooh. Illustrated. How fun will that be?

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

BT said...

Excellent news! Congrats.

Some very good names in that ToC that I recognise - I'm sure all of those I don't are also very good.

Let us know when it's released and I'll not only buy a copy, but do a review for you as well.

Jamie Eyberg said...

K.C.- I have the Grim Reaper on speed dial, but only as a reference.

Carrie- I was very excited about pictures, I just hope they can fit a smallish likeness of Hobbes in there somewhere.

Barry- you are forgiven. :)

B.T.- I will let you know. I am with you, there are more people than not I recognize in most horrorish anthologies anymore,but not this one. I look forward to reading it myself.

I didn't realize it was to be illustrated-- holy god. What a ToC. Yeah, it goes on the list.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Katey, I didn't find out it was going to be ill. until a couple of days before my story was accepted. I was over the moon.
