On THE GUILD podcast of The Writer’s, Artist’s & Reader’s Guild (W.A.R.G.), C. Marry Hultman interviews Peter Beagle.

The second INKLINGS newsletter for 2017 includes Lilly Stahl’s praises for IN CALABRIA.

Ending with the prospect of true everlasting
love, Peter S. Beagle’s new novel is
magical, furious, gripping, and heartwarming.
A story that despite its mythical component is
a story of determination, bravery, faithfulness,
and love that can give hope and a new life to a
beaten and bruised soul. 


NON-STOP READER lauds Peter Beagle and Tachyon Publications in general, and THE NEW VOICES OF FANTASY in particular

I love Peter S. Beagle.  I’ve loved (and read, and owned) pretty much everything he’s ever published.  He’s permanently on my shortlist to automatically buy whatever he puts his name on.

I have loved so many Tachyon press books that again, basically anything they stick their imprint on, I’ll line up at the bookstore, wave my filthy lucre and hop up and down impatiently. Tachyon’s catalog is impressive and a no-fail reading list for speculative fiction fans. It would be fun to just start at one end of the list and read to the other end.

So getting this book was an automatic “Yes, please, with sugar on top”! 


Most anthologies have a thematic cohesiveness.  This one’s stated purpose was to pass the baton to the next generation of authors and though many of the authors included are well known, they are the ‘up and coming’ or relatively newly arrived standard bearers.  

There are some exquisitely written pieces in this anthology.  All of them are worthy.  

Four stars!

Matthew Rettino at ARCHAEOLOGIES OF THE WEIRD announces his intention to review stories from THE NEW VOICES OF FANTASY.

I may not have posted for a while, but I wanted to share this success with as many of my readers and listeners as I can. I have had plans over the last few weeks to give this blog a new start and possibly a re-brand. I’ve had the idea of reviewing short stories as I read through fantasy/weird fiction anthologies, such as the massive volume known as The Weird by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer and the slimmer but no less rewarding THE NEW VOICES OF FANTASY by Peter S. Beagle and Jacob Weisman. I hope that some of my present responsibilities will free up soon so I can dedicate time for these ambitious projects.
