Anthologies edited
Richard Thomas recommends
Toxicity (2014)
Max Booth III
"TOXICITY seeps under your skin, infecting you with black comedy, shocking violence, and the stinking desperation of bad people rotting in the sun. And yet somehow, we still root for these dark souls—and that is the genius of Max Booth III."
Mulgara (2019)
David Rose
"Necromancy is a fascinating dark art, and David Rose tells a captivating story in Mulgara: The Necromancer's Will. If you want to escape the politics and anxiety of modern times, this tale of fantasy and horror is easy to slip into - sprinkled with humor, and bawdy wastrels."
