MOB chats with Selena Chambers, author of the 2016 World Fantasy Award nominated short story ‘The Neurastheniac’, found in the Chaosium anthology Cassilda’s Song: Tales Inspired by Robert W. Chambers King in Yellow Mythos, itself in WFA contention for Best Anthology later this month.
Laird Barron (in his Feb 2016 review of Cassilda’s Song in Locus) said, “2015 was a good year for horror and weird fiction anthologies. Cassilda’s Song is an able demonstration of why. It’s also a pleasant, if macabre, signal that the field is flourishing…. The table of contents is exceptional not for the fact that it’s composed entirely of women, but rather for the high level of quality.”
About Selena Chambers’ tale in Cassilda’s Song, Barron writes, ” — Gorgeous, intricately layered, and extremely strange, this piece may be the blue ribbon exhibit in an exemplary batch …this is top shelf stuff.”
