Happy Birthday, Carniepunk!

carniepunkIn case you missed it over on WLP, Nat and I have been doing a review every Friday up until release week for Carniepunk. Partially because we love the authors, but mostly because someone gave me an ARC. I promise I didn’t make “squee” noises until it arrived in the mail. Really I didn’t. Honest.

I’ll give you links to all of the posts we did on the individual stories, but I want to call attention to a couple of my favorites. Namely Mark Henry’s submission of a dystopian zombie apocalypse tale set in Manhattan. Trust me, there are carnies involved. And zombies. And drag queens. You can go to Carniepunk Fridays: The Introduction for the “full review.”

Honestly, I am saying “favorites” but all of them really were my favorites. There weren’t any bad stories in the mix. And while Mark’s was something I have been waiting to see for a while, Delilah Dawson and Rachel Caine were authors I hadn’t read before that literally came out of nowhere for me in this collection. After reading their shorts, I have picked up books from them. Delilah’s series I picked up that weekend in fact. A couple of them.

If you are interested in the full listing, they are…

  1. Mark Henry
  2. Kelly Meding
  3. Deliah S. Dawson
