SF Signal has a review of this year’s edition of The Year’s Best Horror–which includes a story by our own Edward Morris. As you might imagine, reviewer Jonathon McCalmont finds plenty of good things to say about these stories. We were particularly delighted by his take on Ed’s Lotophagi, which pretty much encapsulates what we’ve been saying right along–about that story, about everything that issues from Ed’s fevered brain:
What is most impressive about Morris’ writing is the way in which he manages to perfectly integrate the demands of characterisation, narrative and style into a structure that is not only non-linear but also brilliantly paced and powerfully affecting. Read this story for the way it makes your stomach tighten. Re-read it for Morris’ jaw-dropping technical skill.
Right on, Mr. McCalmont. And congratulations to Ed on some well-deserved recognition.
