I just want to plug the Shirley Jackson Awards and the impressive list of finalists they've managed to compile. We might argue and debate on who might win but rather than a fierce competition, the lists of finalists is a good reading guide for those looking for fiction that deals with "psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic".
Over at the Shirley Jackson Awards Blog, there'll be various short interviews with the finalists. Today, some guy named Charles Tan got to ask questions with Lucius Shepard. I hope readers get to check out "Vacancy". I touched upon that story in my brief review of Subterranean #7 (also an excellent magazine) last year.
