Congratulations to S.D. Tullis whose story from Null Immortalis entitled THE RETURN appears on the list here:
http://www.darkecho.com/darkfantasy/
i.e. the announcement that this story is appearing in the book ‘The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror’, 2011 Edition
And thanks, SDT, for lending your name to characters in all the NU stories!
 
=====================
 
Further to that, I am pleased to announce the following (which sounds good going to me as Null Immortalis was not wholly a Horror anthology):
 
Ellen Datlow’s Honorable Mentions for 'Best Horror of the Year' volume three

Bacon, Stephen “The Toymaker of Bremen,”

Fry, Gary “Strings Attached,”

Kendall, Rachel “Holesale,”

Lane, Joel “The Drowned Market,”

Nickels, Tim “Supermarine,” (novella)

Oliver, Reggie “You Have Nothing to Fear,”

Pearlman, Daniel “A Giant in the House,”

Simon, Marge “Troot,”

Tullis, S. D. “The Return,”

=======================
As this is a DFL thread, I am proud to report an Ellen Datlow Honorable Mention of one of my own stories, the first for many years.
SO – by DF Lewis (Where The Heart Is – Gray Friar Press)

There is always another day to earmark the end of the world and its first
anniversary next year.

and today I've started my real-time review of REVENANTS:

I wrote two new fiction thingies yesterday, placed for free on the Weirdmonger Wheel (the latter one being about a No Fly Zone and the former about 'stubbers' and 'no spitting' signs on old buses):

Today’s Excerpt from my real-time review of ‘Wizard and Glass’ by Stephen King HERE.

IX. Citgo
“…a kind of open-air haunted house.”
Almost gratuitously meeting at Citgo, with some hint of  the area’s “contamination“, Roland and Susan are spooning together and just teetering upon their mutual exquisite deflowering of her purity thus potentially depriving the town mayor of the virginity he’s already ‘paid for’ (while gloatingly spied upon through her pink globe by hag Rhea). Citgo was previously referenced above as an area of oil-derricks, nineteen of which can be counted as still working autonomously (without human intervention) – and as one travels through it with the spooning couple one is reminded of the Fukishima of today: the numbered reactors (subject to Roland’s counting?), their insidious steaming and heath-robinson machines and ominous mystery of cooling devices and ill-refined gloop (my words, not the book’s) and so forth (please (re)read this chapter and see what I mean), with implications of WMDs and surreptitious Gaddafery by who knows whom… (21 Mar 11)

My personal real-time reading of the Dark Minds Anthology as a vision of the
death process as seen by those dying, in all forms of Horror fiction:
traditional, Ligottian, literary, 'Vault-of-Evil' etc


http://nullimmortalis.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/dark-minds-including-an-original-story-by-gary-mcmahon/


McMahon's Rain is a symbol for the death process as witnessed by those dying. When does the witnessing cease and the nothingness begin, though?

I've just reviewed a new visionary story by Mark Samuels - i.e. THE TOWER, the extra story in the Chomu 'Man of the Machen' book or as they call it: "The Man Who Collected Machen"  :)
Anyone else read it?

I've read it, Des. One of the stronger, more paranoid stories in the collection.

Brilliant story as I pointed out in my review http://blackabyss.co.uk/2011/03/the-man-who-collected-machen-and-other-weird-tales-by-mark-samuels/

Yes, Colin, it was your review that finally persuaded me to buy the Chomu book simply for THE TOWER! And I'm glad I did. :)

My review of The Life of Polycrates & Other Stories for Antiquated Children by Brendan Connell is now finished:
http://nullimmortalis.wordpress.com/2011/04/08/the-life-of-polycrates-other-stories-for-antiquated-children/

My reviewing of THE DARK TOWER series by Stephen King continues apace. This seems to be a major work of Fantasy in English, but it is hardly ever mentioned.  And if you enjoyed LOST, for example, I am sure you will enjoy this. And DR WHO.  Though it is essentially unique.

I am receiving some great stories for the Ha the Ha. It may well turn out *literally* to be the Horror Anthology of Horror Anthologies as well as being stories *about* Horror anthologies. ;)

And I'm getting excited as my first independently published novel (ie from Chomu Press) is due to come out in June: Nemonymous Night.. 380 pages!

Still working on one I hope to send you for HA HA.  I hope you like it, but either way I'm looking forward to the anthology...
