Starlit Wood Paperback and Best Horror Longlist

Starlit Wood (1)

Last year, almost exactly to the day, the hardcover of The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales was published and Navah and I began our editorial journey together. Of course the actual process started much earlier than that, but the publication of the book was a monumental achievement for both of us, individually and as a team, and it marked our first collaboration.

Today The Starlit Wood came out in paperback. This edition takes all the beauty of the hardcover and delivers it in a more affordable (and flexible!) package. The wonderful design folks at Saga also put an awesome stepback cover with much of the praise.

In addition to the various award wins and story reprints I’ve already shared, a few days ago Ellen Datlow posted her longlist of honourable mentions for the Best Horror of the Year series and four stories from Starlit made the list:

  • “In the Desert Like a Bone” by Seanan McGuire
  • “Some Wait” by Stephen Graham Jones
  • “The Thousand Eyes” by Jeffrey Ford
  • “When I Lay Frozen” by Margo Lanagan

We are both incredibly proud of this book, and critical response has been tremendous. Thank you all for your enthusiasm! We hope you’ve enjoyed the book, and if you haven’t read it yet consider picking up the paperback!
