My stories “Candy-coated” and “Ear Cat” were selected for the Best Bizarro Fiction of the Decade anthology. Lots of amazing stories are packed into this beast of a book. I highly recommend it. Definitely worth the money for this much bizarro goodness.

THE BEST BIZARRO FICTION OF THE DECADE

A feeling has been tearing up the underground of the fiction world. It’s a nightmare reflection of the society you inhabit, a surreal explosion of pop, punk, and the post-apocalypse. Over the last decade, Bizarro Fiction has changed the definition of avant garde, it’s abolished the traditional prose of yesterday and established a new precedent for awesome. Collected in this anthology is some of the best weird fiction from the past decade. Award-winning writers, cult prodigies and burgeoning talents all collected together in one place. This is what you’ve done with the last ten years of your life.
