Never knew she was going to post it. I imagine she didn't know she was going to write it until right after it happened. It is extremely sad, though. She wrote a brilliant story called "Black Mary" that deals with the loss of two of her triplets. It's in Beautiful Sorrows

Not sure what kind of stuff you like, but if you're into Neil Gaiman kind of fantastical horror, or "dark fantasy" as a lot of people call it, you'd probably dig it. I think it has a good chance of winning a Stoker Award.

If you have a Kindle, it'll be 99 cents starting tomorrow through the 12th.

As mentioned above, Beautiful Sorrows is currently on sale and enjoy some well-deserved time in the limelight.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #365 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

#2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Short Stories
#4 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Short Stories > Single Author
#10 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Horror

That's pretty awesome!

Finally finished issue #5 (I don't read much beyond SI).
I think my favorites in this one were The Girl In the Blue Burqa and To 'Bie Or Not To Bie' (the idea if placating a hoarde of zombies by performing Shakespeare is both absurd and genius).
Bring on Issue #6...

Yeah, "To 'Bie or Not to 'Bie" is crazy. I totally expected it to suck when I first started reading, but it really is genius. Haha.

You buy digital? If so, the e-version of issue #6 should be ready this weekend.

Thanks!

(What's SI?)

I regret not picking up beautiful sorrow when it was in print. Will it be available again?

Thanks, guys! =)

And the paperback version of Beautiful Sorrows is still in print. The hardcover, which was limited to 50, is the version no longer in print.

It's also on sale for $9.99 right now.

Hmm, could only find the Kindle version on Amazon. I wanted to buy it together with ST 6, and save shipping.

Oh well, maybe next time.

So Amazon.com? Sorry, I should have worded the question better. I was just wondering if you buy from Amazon.co.uk or .de, you know, something closer to home.

If you're using Amazon.com, all our editions are linked. So if you find the digital version, just look on the same page, in the top section below the picture, and there is a box that says Formats. In there, it shows Kindle Edition and Paperback. =)

All but our special holiday issue are in both print and digital formats. =) The holiday issue, which was a digital-only thing, will get the print treatment soon.
