Shirley Jackson Award Short Lists

The nominees for this year’s Shirley Jackson Awards were announced over the weekend. Ellen Datlow naturally figures prominently, and I see many of my other friends on the ballot: Deb Biancotti, Liz Hand, Peter Straub, Jeff Ford, Kelly Link, Ann & Jeff VanderMeer. Not to mention some fine writers I wish I knew better, such as Lucius Shepard, Mary Rickert and Genevieve Valentine. Special congratulations are due to Kit Reed for getting on the ballot at the age of 80.

The book I want to highlight, however, is the one that I have for sale. Engines of Desire: Tales of Love & Other Horrors, by Livia Llewellyn, was published by the fine folks at Lethe Press. It is a nominee in the Single-Author Collection category, and a story from it, “Omphalos”, is in the Novelette category. You can find out more about the book, and read an extract, here.
