As Simon Strantzas recently acknowledged: with contracts signed and sailing off to the editor’s desk, I have the greenlight to make this announcement: Received a seismically significant communique from Stephen Jones-Editor announcing that my short story, “Dirt on Vicky,” is slated for inclusion in Best New Horror No. 26, the award-winning anthology which is set for an autumn, 2015 release through PS Publishing (http://www.pspublishing.co.uk/).
For those unfamiliar with the story, here’s a bit of Robert Butterfield’s review from Dead Reckonings No. 16 which appeared earlier this year: “‘Dirt on Vicky’ is another standout—a mix of psychological and supernatural horror…Set shortly before Halloween in a small Midwestern town, the story allows Smith to demonstrate that he can capture that particular seasonal feel as well as anyone. It centers on Bill Hughes, his son Casey, and the connection between what passes as the town’s haunted house and Bill’s deceased wife, Vicky.”
