Giving the Devil His Due

Giving the Devil His DueGiving the Devil His Due by Rebecca Brewer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Full disclosure: I have a story in this charity anthology, “Daughter of Echidna,” but given the impressive lineup of authors and the good cause for which it’s raising money, I would have read it anyway!

Reading sixteen stories in a row about the abusers of women meeting their comeuppance could result in a feeling of monotony, but credit goes to the authors for keeping things fresh and different in each story. You’ll find everything from secret societies to ancient gods to TALES FROM THE CRYPT-style supernatural twists. As with any anthology, some stories resonated with me more than others, but I didn’t find a single dud in the bunch.

All net proceeds from sales of this anthology go toward supporting The Pixel Project’s anti-violence against women programs, campaigns, and resources. Pick it up; you won’t be disappointed. It’s sixteen great stories for one great cause!

Night of the Mannequins

Night of the Mannequins: A OriginalNight of the Mannequins: A Original by Stephen Graham Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

NIGHT OF THE MANNEQUINS isn’t what I expected it to be, but like so many of the works of Stephen Graham Jones, it pulled me in right from the start regardless. Jones’s mastery of narrative voice is in the spotlight here. You’re so deep in Sawyer’s head from the get-go that it’s almost like a magic trick how Jones is able to do it without you noticing. His command of characterization and detail while using an economy of words continues to amaze me. As with most of his fiction, there’s a deep, underlying sense of tragedy throughout, a sadness that seeps under your skin. Jones always writes something special, and even if this novella isn’t what you think it is, it’ll stick with you long after you read its stunning finale.

On sale today, September 1st, from Running Wild Press! Giving the Devil His Due, edited by Rebecca Brewer, is a charity anthology that features a brand-new, original story by me called “Daughter of Echidna.” 100% of the net proceeds will go to supporting The Pixel Project’s anti-violence against women programs, campaigns, and resources. Here is the publisher’s description:

What if a young girl had the power to stop her tyrannical father from battering her mother ever again?

What if a student had a secret weapon to end sexual assault by her predatory professor permanently?

What if a housewife had unusual means to get back at her controlling husband and walk away from her marriage alive?

In Giving the Devil His Due, the Pixel Project’s first charity anthology, sixteen acclaimed fantasy, science fiction, and horror authors take readers on an unforgettable journey to alternative worlds where men who abuse and murder women and girls meet their comeuppance in uncanny ways.

Featuring stories from Stephen Graham Jones, Christina Henry, Peter Tieryas, Kelley Armstrong, Linda D. Addison, Hillary Monahan, and more, Giving the Devil His Due presents sixteen stories that will make you think about the importance of justice for the victims of gender-based violence, how rare this justice is in our own world, and why we need to end violence against women once and for all.

You can purchase the book in paperback or e-book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powells, Bookshop, direct from the publisher, or from your favorite bookseller. Sixteen great stories for one great cause!
