The “HWA Know a Nominee” interview

I was interviewed about my HWA nominated anthology The Doll Collection, but the interview was never posted, so here it is:

HWA Know a Nominee 2016
1. Please describe the genesis for the idea that eventually became the work(s) for which you’ve been nominated. What attracted you most to the project? If nominated in multiple categories, please touch briefly on each.
ED: I’ve been collecting weird dolls and doll parts for several years now and eventually the idea almost naturally popped into my head to put together a doll horror anthology.
2. What was the most challenging part of bringing the concept(s) to fruition? The most rewarding aspect of the process?
ED: The most difficult part was coming up with the right title. A great title is often the key to actually attracting the interest of a publisher. I had the idea, and noodled around with a proposal for a couple of years, with no idea of what to call it. Finally, during lunch with my friend Veronica Schanoes (a writer and academic with whom I’m friends and who subequently wrote a story for the anthology) she came up with THE DOLL COLLECTION, which I knew was perfect.

For an original anthology, it’s always a challenge to wrangle the writers I’ve solicited into writing a variety of stories tied to one theme. As the stories come in, I need to weigh them against what I’ve already bought. On the other hand, it’s a joy to know that many of the stories that are in any given anthology would not exist if I’d not solicited them.

And of course, the finished book itself, with stories and interior photographs illustrating it, pleases me greatly.

3. What do you think good horror/dark literature should achieve? How do you feel the work(s) for which you’ve been nominated work fits into (or help give shape to) that ideal?
ED: As a reader, I want to experience a distinct feeling of unease, combined with being drawn into a situation by characters that I find interesting and believable. I want stories that work on more than one, superficial level. I want a story to be memorable. An anthology of course contains many stories. The Doll Collection has seventeen stories and I hope that it least a few stick in readers’ minds.
4. I’m curious about your writing and/or editing process. Is there a certain setting or set of circumstances that help to move things along? If you find yourself getting stuck, where and why?
ED: By necessity, I must wait for solicited submissions to arrive. Those submissions usually come in a few months after I initially ask for stories. That’s the point I start reading and accepting stories. If I love a story but think it needs a lot of work, I’ll communicate with the author right away and although I may not at that point commit to buying the story–I’ll suggest we work on it until it’s in good enough shape to accept it. This might require several rewrites. There will be a final line edit by me a couple of months before I need to hand the full mss in to my publisher. The great thing about working on more than one project (different anthologies and Tor.com) at a time is that if I get restless or just can’t focus on one project, I can read for or edit one of the other projects on which I’m working.
I sometimes get stuck thinking up an idea for another anthology to pitch to my various publishers. I’m always burned out toward the end of writing up my summary of the year for the Best Horror of the Year series.
But I try to give my brain a break and always come up with something.

5. As you probably know, many of our readers are writers and/or editors. What is the most valuable piece of advice you can share?
ED: As an editor, you must be able to reject stories, even by writers who are your friends. And always remember, it’s not your story it’s the writer’s. For a writer/editor this is especially important: don’t impose your writing style or voice on another writer’s work while editing them.
6. If you’re attending WHC this year, what are you most looking forward to at this year’s event? If not attending, what do you think is the significance of recognitions like the Bram Stoker Awards?
ED: Seeing and hanging out with writers, artists, editors, and agents, movie makers, and everyone else connected to the business. I just want to have fun.
7. What scares you most? Why? How (if at all) does that figure into your work or the projects you’re attracted to?
ED; In real life I’m scared by political extremism (within and outside the US) and a seemingly increasing intolerance of each other’s rights (in the US). This relates not at all to what I work on.
8. What are you reading for pleasure lately? Can you point us to new authors or works we ought to know about?
ED: I don’t have time to read specifically for pleasure so I try to combine my reading for the Best Horror of the Year with novels I hope will dovetail with that reading. So I only read what’s being published in the year for which I’m reading (best horror). I recently finished Richard Kadrey’s new novel THE EVERYTHING BOX, a non-Sandman Slim novel (the new one in that series is coming soon). They’re very entertaining very dark fantasies with horrific elements. I read Elizabeth Hand’s new Cass Neary novel HARD LIGHT, which is a terrific dark thriller (with supernatural elements) about a great anti-hero- a fucked up photographer famous for her photos of the drug-infested east village of the punk era. Just out. And in the middle of Matt Ruff’s excellent take on Lovecraftian lore called LOVECRAFT COUNTRY.

Victor LaValle’s THE BALLAD OF BLACK TOM, a Tor.com novella (I edited it) is another fine take on Lovecraftian horror from the point of view of a young black man from Harlem in the 20s. LaValle is better known in mainstream than horror although his novels BIG MACHINE (winner of the Shirley Jackson Award) and THE DEVIL IN SILVER are both with the sf/f/h genre, particularly the second. He’s someone to watch.

Livia Llewellyn has a new collection out this year-her second-called FURNACE and it’s spectacular. Horrific, often sensual, and always disturbing-the perfect winning combination.

Call for Submissions Best Horror of the Year volume 9

Call for Submissions

I am editing the anthology series Best Horror of the Year (Night Shade Books) and am currently reading for the ninth volume, which will include all material published in 2016.

I am looking for stories and poetry from all branches of horror: from the traditional-supernatural to the borderline, including high-tech sf horror, supernatural stories, psychological horror, dark crime, or anything else that might qualify. If in doubt, send it. This is a reprint anthology so I am only reading material published in or about to be published in 2016. Submission deadline for individual stories is December 15th 2016. I’ll look at galleys or manuscripts. Authors should check that their publishers are sending review copies to me as I don’t have time or energy to nag publishers to get me material. I request it once (maybe twice) and that’s it.

I will look at e-versions of anthologies and collections if they are navigable and have running heads. Otherwise I will not read them.  But I really really prefer print, if your book is available that way.

You can query me as to whether I have your collection or an anthology in which you have a story at datlow@yahoo.com

There will be a summation of “the year in horror” in the front of the volume. This includes novels, nonfiction, poetry, art books, and “odds and ends”– material that doesn’t fit elsewhere but that I feel might interest the horror reader. But I must be aware of this material in order to mention it. The deadline for submissions to this section is December 30th, 2016.

****I regularly read many magazines and webzines that publish horror (Black Static, Dark Discoveries, Cemetery Dance, Supernatural Tales, F&SF, The Dark, Nightmare, and the other digests, etc) or from anthologies and collections, unless I don’t have or can’t get that anthology or collection. Again, please ask your publisher to send me the magazine or book. For online publications, I prefer that you email me individual files.

Please do not send an SASE. If I choose a story you will be informed. For confirmation that I‘ve received something, email me at datlow@yahoo.com
thank you

Call for Submissions -Best Horror of the Year volume 8

Call for Submissions

I am editing the anthology series Best Horror of the Year (Night Shade Books) and am currently reading for the eighth volume, which will include all material published in 2015. Reprints only.

I am looking for stories and poetry from all branches of horror: from the traditional-supernatural to the borderline, including high-tech sf horror, supernatural stories, psychological horror, dark crime, or anything else that might qualify. If in doubt, send it. This is a reprint anthology so I am only reading material published in or about to be published in 2015. Submission deadline for individual stories is December 15th 2015. I’ll look at galleys or manuscripts. Authors should check that their publishers are sending review copies to me as I don’t have time or energy to nag publishers to get me material. I request it once (maybe twice) and that’s it.

You can query me as to whether I have your collection or anthology at datlow@yahoo.com

There will be a summation of “the year in horror” in the front of the volume. This includes novels, nonfiction, poetry, art books, and “odds and ends”– material that doesn’t fit elsewhere but that I feel might interest the horror reader. But I must be aware of this material in order to mention it. The deadline for submissions to this section is December 15th, 2015.

Best Horror of the Year Volume Eight

PMB 391

511 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY 10011-8436

****I regularly read many magazines that publish horror (Black Static, Dark Discoveries, Cemetery Dance, Supernatural Tales, F&SF and the other digests, etc) or from anthologies and collections, unless I don’t have or can’t get that anthology or collection. Again, please ask your publisher to send me the magazine or book. For online publications, please have your publishers email me doc files of your stories.  I will also accept printouts of stories produced and first “published” in 2015 as podcasts.

 

Please do not send an SASE. If  I choose a story you will be informed. For confirmation that I‘ve received something, enclose a self-addressed-stamped postcard and I will let you know the date it arrived.

thank you
