When I posted last year about a call for submissions for a short fiction anthology centered on female werewolves, I didn’t expect that my submission would make the cut, yet here we are! My story “The Librarian” is one of seventeen stories in Wolf-Girls: Dark Tales of Teeth, Claws and Lycogyny, available June 29th from Hic Dragones. Here are the details:
lycogyny, n., the assumption by women of the
form and nature of wolves
New title from Hic Dragones
Wolf-Girls: Dark Tales of Teeth, Claws and Lycogyny
Edited by Hannah Kate
Available: 29th June 2012
Feral, vicious, fierce and lost… the she-wolf is a strange creature of the night. Attractive to some; repulsive to others, she stalks the fringes of our world as though it were her prey. She is the baddest of girls, the fatalest of femmes – but she is also the excluded, the abject, the monster.
The Wolf-Girls within these pages are mad, bad and dangerous to know. But they are also rejected and tortured, loving and loyal, avenging and triumphant. Some of them are even human…
Wolf-Girls is the second title from Hic Dragones, and it contains new stories from Kim Bannerman, Mary Borsellino, J. K. Coi, Helen Cross, Marie Cruz, Beth Daley, Rosie Garland, Jeanette Greaves, Hannah Kate, L. Lark, Lyn Lockwood, R. A. Martens, Lynsey May, Mihaela Nicolescu, Sarah Peacock, Andrew Quinton and Nu Yang. This is the first time my fiction has been published anywhere, and I am absolutely honoured to be in such fine company.
If you’re in the Manchester area on June 29th, you would be wise to attend the Wolf-Girls launch party. I won’t be in attendance because somebody decided to situate my city 7,340 km away, but there’ll be readings from contributors, giveaways, competitions and wine, so somebody please go and have a good time on my behalf.
Hey Mom, Dad, I did it!
