Another Fading Light Review

Kick ass cover by Jessy Lucero
It looks like the Fading Light anthology, edited by the Exquisite Marquis Tim Marquitz and includes my short story, "Blessed Be the Shadowchildren,  is racking up the favorable reviews. 

Michael R. Collins  starts his review with a tangential mention of his last review of After: Nineteen Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling: 

"Tim Marquitz tackles this intriguing possibility in Fading Light: An Anthology of the Monstrous. Physically as impressive as After, particularly thanks to evocative cover art by Jesse Lucero, Marquitz’s anthology incorporates thirty tales of the end … the bitter end, in nearly every possible definition of bitter. The tales are linked, however, by a common image, indicated by the title, Fading Light."

But then, further on, Collins gives a brief mention of my story:

"Or possibly, just possibly, the sun itself has lost something so essential to its being that it has already begun to dim when the story opens. Malon Edward[s's] story “Blessed Be the Shadowchildren” considers that possibility in a tale of tortured love, celestial kidnapping, and blackest revenge."   

I think that's a good description of the story. 

Check out the review, which is well-written and in-depth. If you see what you like, buy a copy of the anthology. It comes in Kindle and paperback
