“Enjoy this gourmet sampling of the boldest and most accomplished of today’s new voices in Fantasy, SF and Horror. A delight to read.” —Terry Bisson, Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author
CIRCLES IN THE HAIR, an anthology by the members of CITH, features the work of Linda Addison, four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award; Keith R. A. DeCandido, author of "Children of the Revolution: A Sleepy Hollow Novel"; Gerard Houarner, author of "Road to Hell"; Faith L. Justice, author of "Sword of the Gladiatrix"; Gordon Linzner, editor emeritus of "Space & Time Magazine," plus stories by Nancy Allison, Alexa deMonterice, Marina Frants, K. Loughrey Hasell, Tim Hatcher, Natalia Lincoln, M. P. Melnis, Robert Emmett Murphy, Jr., Tom Pickens, Roy L. Post, Leigh Riley, and Hanson Wong with a Foreword by Nancy Kress.
The stories are set in times as distant as Bronze Age China and the far flung future; and in places as strange as a Brooklyn courthouse and the edge of the universe. Meet a were-moose, aboriginal spirits, a fetal vampire, and the devil’s mother-in-law. These stories and poems evoke laughter, tears, shivers, and thoughtfulness. Five were singled out for Honorable Mention by Ellen Datlow in "The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror: Nineteenth Collection."
