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."
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.
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.
