UK-based Cosmos Books
will publish reprint anthology Dark Fantasy:
The Best of 2000, a "huge new dark-fantasy annual anthology", edited
by author Steve Savile.
As reported in UK ezine The
Paper Snarl, Dark Fantasy: The Best of 2000 is set to compete with the
Datlow/Windling Year's Best Fantasy and Horror and Stephen Jones's
Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, which Savile describes as "staid".
"Dark Fantasy is a subgenre that inhabits the less graphic and violent
territories out there," according to the editor, who believes that the new book
will have a positive effect on the genre as a whole.
The anthology is scheduled for June or July 2001. Authors
with relevant stories published during 2000 (web publication is OK)
should send a query to Steve at
