ellen_datlow has posted her honorable mention picks for Best Horror of the Year: Volume 2, and she gave nods to both "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast" and "Within Your Soul I Sightless See."

Shiny.

I find it interesting that "Sinner" has been described or categorized as both fantasy and horror as well as science fiction. Personally, I consider it to be science fiction, although it's not like I take issue with it being classified as science-fantasy or horror SF. I've never been one to play the "what genre is it?" game or its first-cousin, the "that's not such-and-such genre!" blood sport.

Genre labels are wibbly. That's my line, and I'm sticking to it.

"Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast" reminded me of Neil Gaiman. He seems to do much fantasy. Perhaps that is where the association was made?

Hey, I'll take "reminds me of Neil Gaiman" any day! BTW, I know I owe you an email about Daily Dragon website stuff. Am way buried under a pile of tardy to-do items with the legislature dragging session out this late. Sorrysorry.

Congratulations!

(I had something on there last year that I wouldn't have considered horror...but one never knows)

I'd call it SF, too, but who the hell cares? Congrats!
