FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Laird Barron to Edit Inaugural ‘Year’s Best Weird Fiction’

Press release


Toronto, Canada, July 2013 — Laird Barron, a master of the weird tale, will edit the inaugural volume of the Year’s Best Weird Fiction for Undertow Publications. Barron’s work has been nominated for several awards, and has been reprinted in numerous “Year’s Best” anthologies.

“It's a tremendous honor to edit the inaugural Year's Best Weird Fiction. I am pleased to be working with Michael Kelly and his Undertow Publications, an eminent force in the horror and weird fiction genres,” Barron said.

Established in 2009 by writer Michael Kelly, Undertow Publications (UP) is home to the acclaimed weird journal Shadows & Tall Trees, from which a number of stories have been selected for various “Best Of” anthologies. The initial release from UP, Apparitions, was a finalist for The Shirley Jackson Award. As editor, Kelly has been a finalist for the Shirley Jackson and British Fantasy Society Awards, and his fiction has appeared in a number of venues, including The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror.

“I’m thrilled that Laird Barron has agreed to edit the first Year’s Best Weird Fiction,” Kelly said. “I could think of no better person for the initial edition.”

Undertow Publications is undertaking a crowd-funding campaign to raise funds for the book. Kelly says, “There has never been a dedicated volume of the year’s finest weird fiction. It seems evident that an independent press will have to take up the task. We are hopeful the many aficionados of weird fiction will help fund what we believe will become an important and vital annual anthology. We envision very little, if any, overlap with the other “Year’s Best” volumes. And I’m excited to see what Laird conjures.”

Very pleased to report we have achieved our goal. Thanks to everyone who contributed or helped out in any way.

-Mike

PS - We are still technically fund-raising. Any further monies will be spent on either Shadows & tall Trees 6 or future Year's best volumes.

One last call to publishers to get their material in. We can't consider it if we do not see it, obviously.
