Bucket List


If I had a bucket list, then getting into a Prime Books anthology would be on it. So let me mark a tick in that box. My story 'Manipulating Paper Birds' (which first appeared in my Strange Men collection) is to be reprinted in Circus, Fantasy Under the Big Top edited by Ekaterina Sedia. I've sent a huge thank you to the person who recommended the story.

A huge, huge thank you.

Isn't the cover awesome and creepy and well awesome?

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, guys.

Simon said...

Excellent news! Well pleased for you, Miss Gardner! :)

Cate Gardner said...

Thank you, Mr Bestwick.

K.C. Shaw said...

Ooh, congratulations! And that cover art is totally creepy, but then it has a clown on it so it would be creepy even without the other creepy elements.

Cate Gardner said...

First rule of horror... If you're worried your story isn't scary throw in a clown or two.

Deborah Walker said...

What fantastic news, it could only be bettered if I was in it, too. Wait a minute . . .

Cate Gardner said...

Seriously, Deborah. Woot, woot and another dash of woot.

Anthony Rapino said...

Awesome!!! Congrats, Cate!

That's great, and what a fantastic concept for an anthology. I'll be buying it immediately.

probablymonsters said...

Actually, I'll be adding it to the 'to buy' list, as it's not out yet. As your 'is to be reprinted' comment made clear. Oops.

Congratulations, Cate! Excellent news!
"Manipulating Paper Birds" was one of my favourites from your circus themed stories, but at close contest with "Reflective Curve of a Potion Bottle". And may I say, dear lady, that you have a way with titles that mesmerises me :)

Simon Kewin said...

Awesome all round. Congratulations.

Rabid Fox said...

Incredible news, Cate. Very happy for you. I'll certainly be keeping an eye out for this one.

Kara McElhinny said...

the cover is wickedly beautiful and congratulations on the reprint!

Danielle Ferries said...

Most excellent news! Congrats. And it is indeed a creepy cover. Lovely.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, guys :D

Katey said...

I want it so much, but I am so terrified of clowns anyhow... I can read it with the lights on. While I have company. Yes.

Seriously, though, congratulations. Soooooooo huge!

Cate Gardner said...

And the clown on that cover is particularly creepy.
