I am a fan of J. David Osborne’s work (Black Gum is a noir fever dream), and a fan of the JDO show and his publishing company, Broken River Books. He’s one of the smart guys (his feedback on an early draft of Aletheia made it better) and he’s one of the good guys (he hasn’t gloated about it yet). And he had me on his show to talk about spiders.
Angela Slatter is the WFC award-winning author of The Girl with No Hands and Other Tales, Sourdough and Other Stories, The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings, Winter Children and Other Chilling Tales, A Feast of Sorrows: Stories and Black-Winged Angels, as well as Midnight and Moonshine and The Female Factory (both with Lisa L. Hannett). She has won a World Fantasy Award, a British Fantasy Award, a Ditmar, and five Aurealis Awards, as well as being a finalist for the Norma K. Hemming Award.
She dug Aletheia. She had me on her blog.
