The return of scary fog

I think this is a bit late, but I’ve only just noticed that Rich Horton’s Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy 2021 has been released, and it features my story Fog and Pearls at the King’s Cross Junction. This is an e-book only publication this year, and it’s got lots of wonderful writers in it, such as Tade Thompson, Sofia Samatar, Michael Swanwick, Yoon Ha Lee and more.

Here’s a link to go take a look, and here’s a quick review from Black Gate.

Fog and Pearls at the King’s Cross Junction first appeared in London Centric: Tales of Future London, by NewCon Press, which is a little bit ironic since it’s a story set in the past, during the Great Smog of London in 1952. Impossible to see, torture to breathe, there’s a place not far from the train station that offers a safe haven to those travellers stranded in the smog. Or does it?

I’ve always wanted to put that at the end of a blurb. Or does it? Brilliant. You can see why I’m not usually encouraged to write them.
