To my unending surprise, a story of mine showed up on the preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Awards in the Short Fiction category.
Why am I so surprised? It’s flash. Yep, all of 650 words, soaking wet.
The story is called “Cold, Silent and Dark,” and I wrote it for Undercurrents, a sea monster-themed, charity anthology. If that sounds like your thing, the link is below. My publisher, Wordfire Press made the story available for the consideration of voting HWA members, but anyone else is welcome to read it, too.
“Cold, Silent, and Dark” is also eligible for the 2018 Hugo and Nebula Awards.
