Pretty excited Louise Pieper won the Best Fantasy Short Story Aurealis Award for “Truth be Told”, one of the stories we put in our Unnatural Order monster anthology.1

The whole book was also nominated in the Best Anthology category (though that one was ultimately picked up by Rebuilding Tomorrow); I believe it’s the first CSFG anthology to do so, which is pretty excited.

Congratulations to all the winners and special congratulations and thank you to Louise, for gifting us your amazing story.

  1. Not playing favorites but totally playing favorites because it was one of mine. Favorites. I mean.

They’re he-ee-ee-ere!

Two copies of UNNATURAL ORDER sitting next to a tentaplush.

The Unnatural Order print proofs arrived and… yes. Yes, that’ll do nicely.

(Now if only Ingram wasn’t loading at a snail’s pace for some reason I could start shipping these babies out…)

Oh snap it’s here…

A pink sea dragon winds through blue water, overlaid by the book's title contents.

So yeah. 2020 was A Year but, somehow, we actually managed to get out an anthology? Admittedly on, like, the literal last day of the year—and with print versions still pending—but, like… we did it! Unnatural Order is out and is an Actual Thing you can buy and read?

Holy crap.

(Jax‘s cover art is still amazing, also. Sorry I had to ruin it by putting dumb words all over it…)

20th December, 2020

Oh yeah you remember how I was editing that anthology of monster stories? Yeah, that’s still happening…

(Psst you can also pre-order the book here.)

Monstrous contents.

Hey y’all remember how I was editing that anthology of monsters? Yeah. That’s still A Thing That Is Happening, and we just announced the table of contents (i.e. the authors and their stories) and it is gonna be so good

Also spent all weekend booking things for both Continuum and the motherfreakin’ WorldCon and… it’s happening y’all. It’s really happening…
