Author Mike Griffiths has reviewed Crossed Genres Year Two for Innsmouth Free Press. It’s a very positive review:

“These are excellent and entertaining stories. All are well-written and could even be a guide for aspiring authors who are wondering what sort of stories could help get them published in contemporary speculative magazines. The folks at Crossed Genres tend to focus on powerful writing. Often, the mood takes over the story itself and is driven home by the prose.”

Griffiths touches briefly on each story in the anthology. It’s a good review! Go here to read the entire review.

(And for those interested, the ebook of Crossed Genres Year Two is half its original price now: only $1.99!)

Yesterday, The Portal posted a wonderful review of CG’s 2nd anthology, Crossed Genres Year Two.

The reviewer seems particularly impressed with Sabrina Vourvoulias’ “Flying With the Dead” from our Characters of Color issue:

I can’t begin to summarize in a way that does it justice, but it’s filled with the hope and bitterness and fear tied in the issue of illegal immigration, the common and not-so-common humanity of the people involved, and wrapped in a wonderful, winged ending. It doesn’t make the world any better, obviously, but it’s warmth in an otherwise cold place. It’s quite possibly the best place to end the anthology: with ghosts whispering promises.

The editors have clearly had a successful year.

Overall it’s an extremely positive review and we’re very, very pleased with it. So pleased, we spontaneously decided to offer Crossed Genres Year Two for 25% off as a “Thank you”!

The sale will last through Saturday, January 8. Thanks to all our supporters, and to The Portal for the review!

* Zipped bundle contains 7 DRM-free formats: EPUB, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PDF and PRC.

There are just five hours left to preorder RJ Astruc’s A Festival of Skeletons:

If you have no interest at all in reading a fabulous, well thought-out, engaging story, stay away from RJ Astruc’s writing – you’ll get sucked in and read it anyway. The moment I started reading, she dragged me along for an extraordinary, outrageous ride through a perfectly ordinary universe filled with murder, madness, mystery, magic, merfolk, and morticians. Dark humor, light humor, macabre doings, cute little outfits, deluded cops, and afternoon tea with reformed alcoholics are all just the tip of the iceberg in this story. I’m not only reserving bookshelf space for the printed edition of A Festival of Skeletons, I’ll be reserving reading and re-reading time for it, too. Be careful of this one, readers; you won’t want to put it down, either!
