I am proud to announce that Bad-Ass Faeries 3: In All Their Glory, which includes my story “Amazons and Predators”, has won the 2011 EPIC Award for Best Anthology.
The volume includes twenty-one stories of military/conflict-themed faerie fiction by D.C. Wilson, Hildy Silverman, Chris Pisano & Brian Koscienski, Trisha Wooldridge & Christy Tohara, Lee C. Hillman, Robert E. Waters, Bernie Mojzes, C.J. Henderson, James Daniel Ross, Darren W. Pearce & Neal Levin, Jeffrey Lyman, L. Jagi Lamplighter, Kelly A. Harmon, Jason Franks, Patrick Thomas, David Lee Summers, David Sherman, Elaine Corvidae, James Chambers, John L. French, and Danielle Ackley-McPhail.
The Bad-Ass Faeries series came out of a desire to take faerie mythology back to its darker roots, when all was not goodness and light, but more mischief and mayhem. These faeries more closely resemble those of the ancient legends still passed down today in many parts of the world that haven’t lost touch with magic. A big part of faerie legends were the fae as warriors, an aspect which is represented in this latest volume.
If you’re a writer who would like to get in on the action, the editors have just recently begun work on the fourth book in the series: It’s Elemental. For submission details visit www.badassfaeries.com/submissions.htm.
