Anthologies edited
Laird Barron recommends

Southern Gods (2011)
John Hornor Jacobs
"A bit of HP Lovecraft, a touch of William Hjortsberg, Southern Gods is an effective combination of cosmic horror and southern Gothic traditions. John Hornor Jacobs will turn heads with this debut."

Down (2012)
Nate Southard
"A sleek and nasty tale, Southard continues to carve a name for himself with Down."

The Testament of Tall Eagle (2015)
John R Fultz
"The Testament of Tall Eagle is myth-making of epic scope. Fultz has rapidly matured into a major fantasist."

The Fisherman (2016)
John Langan
"The Fisherman is an epic, yet intimate, horror novel. Langan channels M. R. James, Robert E. Howard, and Norman Maclean. What you get is A river Runs Through It...Straight to hell."
