Ghost Story Award for “Dreams of Shadow and Smoke”


Last year, to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Irish writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Swan River Press released a tribute anthology, Dreams of Shadow and Smoke: Stories for J. Sheridan Le Fanu that included my riff on “An Account of Some Strange Disturbances on Aungier Street” titled “The Corner Lot.” Yesterday, we learned that the anthology had won the inaugural Ghost Story Award for best ghost story book published in English in 2014! Congratulations also are due to D.P. Watt, whose story “Shallabalah,” originally published in the Ghost & Scholars Newsletter, won for best short story.

You can purchase Dreams of Shadow and Smoke at the Swan River Press website.
