Latest Reviews and Mentions

Ellen Datlow makes some lovely mentions of Twelfth Planet Press in her Best Horror of the Year, Volume 2.

She gives honorable mentions to:

Horn by Peter Ball.
“Diamond Shell,” A Book of Endings by Deborah Biancotti.
“Hush,” A Book of Endings by Deborah Biancotti.
Siren Beat by Tansy Rayner Roberts.
Roadkill by Robert Shearman.

And in her summation of the year:

A Book of Endings by Deborah Biancotti (Twelfth Planet Press) is the author's first collection and showcases twenty-one stories, six of them new. Some are horror, others not. But most are very fine.

Horn by Peter M. Ball (Twelfth Planet Press) is an entertaining fantasy/noir detective story taking place in a world in which magic abounds. A resurrected private eye is persuaded to investigate the ugly murder of a fourteen-year-old girl.

Roadkill by Robert Shearman and Siren Beat by Tansy Rayner Roberts (Twelfth Planet Press) are two excellent novellas in one chapbook. Shearman won the World Fantasy Award a couple of years ago for his first collection Tiny Deaths. Roadkill is as much a character study as a tale of an uneasy couple encounter with the strange during a dirty weekend. Roberts' story is more straightforward but just as entertaining as the wounded "Guardian" of Hobart, Tasmania must
protect her people from two sirens on the prowl.
