Rebecca Lloyd’s Mercy is shortlisted in the World Fantasy Awards

Congratulations to wonderful Pangea editor, Rebecca Lloyd whose collection, Mercy is shortlisted in the World Fantasy award. Her publisher Tartarus Press put up the collection for the award. The results will be announced in November this year.

Mercy has received tremendous praise. In his Neon review, Christopher Frost says: … the sixteen strange tales all tied together by the presence of the uncanny and the unsettling…. Again and again throughout the collection we are invited into the small (or sometimes not so small), private living spaces of her characters, and shown the states of loneliness or squalor or beauty in which they live.

MR Cosby has said: These are wonderfully written tales, dealing with life, love, relationships and the loss thereof in a thoroughly believable way, and with a depth not present in many works of short fiction.

If you don’t yet have a copy, you can purchase Mercy online at Amazon, or directly from Tartarus Press. It can also be found at Waterstones and other high street bookshops.

More about Rebecca on her website or at Goodreads. She can be followed on Facebook, and on Twitter.
