Bloodstones, the anthology which features my story, The Skin of the World, got a lovely review from Andrew J McKiernan at Thirteen O’Clock.

In particular, McKiernan said this about my story (which is probably the best review anything I’ve written has gotten to date):

Stephanie Gunn’s ‘The Skin of the World’ takes us deeper yet, away from the suburbs and those who’d ply their coastal fringes, peeling away the layers to reveal a darker world beneath. ‘The Skin of the World’ was, for me, a perfect end to Bloodstones. Like the places revealed, the story has a depth had that me wanting more, feeling there was more going on in this world than a single story could reveal. Very pleasing then to read in the author’s introduction, that ‘The Skin of the World’ is only a small part of a much larger series of stories and novels, of which I’m certainly keen to read more.

I need to get cracking on Wintersun, the novel which follows on from The Skin of the World, I think.

A somewhat belated heads-up that Ticonderoga’s Bloodstones, featuring my story, The Skin of the World, is available for purchase internationally:

Hardcover at Amazon.

Paperback at Amazon.

Hardcover at Book Depository.

Paperback at Book Depository.

I do have bias, since I have a story in here, but I just finished reading through the whole anthology today, and while I can’t comment on a bunch of stories (since they’re eligible for the Aurealis Awards, of which I am a judge), I can say that this is hands down one of the strongest set of stories I’ve read in a long, long time.  There is so much just downright good writing in here, and use of some really unusual mythologies.  Even if I wasn’t in it, I’d be totally recommending it.

It is with much squee that I can announce that my story, The Skin of the World, will be appearing in the upcoming Ticonderoga Publications anthology Bloodstonesedited by Amanda Pillar.

For those following along with the patchwork quilt of my writing worlds, The Skin of the World is a prequel to the novel I’ve been working on (which is currently in a very messy draft that needs to be stripped to the bone), The White Raven, and also takes place in the same universe as Narthex, which was published in In Bad Dreams 2: Where Death Stalks.  Yes, I like having interconnected stories!

Here’s a little peek into how awesome this is for me – not only do I get to work with Amanda again, who is an amazing editor (she was co-editor for Grants Pass), but there’s also this: a few months ago, I sat down and started making a list of goals I’d like to achieve with my career, including some of the publishers that I’d like to sell stories (or longer works) to.  And Ticonderoga was on that list :)

The awesome table of contents:

  • Joanne Anderton, “Sanaa’s Army”
  • Alan Baxter, “Cephalopoda Obsessia”
  • Jenny Blackford, “A Moveable Feast”
  • Vivian Caethe, “Skin”
  • MD Curelas, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”
  • Thoraiya Dyer, “Surviving Film”
  • Dirk Flinthart, “The Bull in Winter”
  • Stephanie Gunn, “The Skin of the World”
  • Richard Harland, “A Mother’s Love”
  • Pete Kempshall, “Dead Inside”
  • Penny Love, “A Small Bad Thing”
  • Karen Maric, “Embracing the Invisible”
  • Christine Morgan, “Ferreau’s Curse”
  • Nicole Murphy, “Euryale”
  • Jessica Otis, “And the Dead Shall be Raised Incorruptible”
  • Dan Rabarts, “The Bone Plate”
  • Erin Underwood, “The Foam Born”
Bloodstones will be released in October 2012.
