“Black Bequeathments” finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award

Quite pleased to report that my novelette, “Black Bequeathments”, published as a chapbook through Dim Shores last year, has been selected as a finalist for the coveted Shirley Jackson Award. Joining my story are powerhouse tales by Kurt Fawver, Brooke Warra, Joanna Koch, M. R. Carey, and Steve Dillon. Alas, due to epidemic that’s been transforming all our lives, the award ceremony this year will held online, but that means everyone will get the chance to find out in real time if their favourite works win, so it’s not all bad.

I’d like to extend my thanks to the jurors for selecting my novelette to appear among so many great stories.
