Plug: “Return to Mariabronn” by Gary A. Braunbeck

Tor emailed me that “Return to Mariabronn” by Gary A. Braunbeck, a short story in Haunted Legends (edited by Ellen Datlow and Nick Mamatas), was recently dramatized in Writer's Talk. You can listen to it there, or if the audio link doesn't work for you (as was in my case), you can download it from here.

Gary A. Braunbeck’s work has received the International Horror Guild Award, the Bram Stoker Award, and the Best Fiction Collection Award from Cemetery Dance. “Return from Mariabronn” is an eerie, updated take on the phantom hitchhiker urban legend—a classic story that has been told around the campfire for generations.

Darkly thrilling, these twenty new ghost stories have all the chills and power of traditional ghost stories, but each tale is a unique retelling of an urban legend from the world over. Multiple award winning editor Ellen Datlow and award-nominated author and editor Nick Mamatas recruited Jeffrey Ford, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale, Caitlin Kiernan, Catherynne M. Valente, Kit Reed, Ekaterina Sedia, and thirteen other fine writers to create stories unlike any they've written before. Tales to make readers shiver with fear, jump at noises in the night, keep the lights on.
ELLEN DATLOW has won eight World Fantasy Awards, two Bram Stoker Awards, the International Horror Guild Award, two Hugo Awards, and two Locus Awards for her work as an editor. In a career spanning more than twenty-five years, she has been the fiction editor of OMNI and SCIFI.COM. Datlow has edited many successful anthologies, including The Dark, The Coyote Road, and Inferno. She has also co-edited the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror series, The Faery Reel, A Wolf at the Door, and Swan Sister. She lives in Manhattan.
NICK MAMATAS, co-editor of the groundbreaking fiction magazine Clarkesworld, lives in Northern California.
