Stories from SNOW WHITE LEARNS WITCHCRAFT to appear in Best of the Year anthologies

/ Wednesday, September 30th, 2020 / No Comments »

I am celebrating an important day for one of Mythic Delirium Books’ authors by sharing that both of the original stories that Theodora Goss wrote for her collection of fiction and poetry Snow White Learns Witchcraft are getting reprinted in year’s best collections.

Both stories are riffs on beloved Hans Christian Andersen yarns.

Paula Guran’s latest The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror, scheduled for an Oct. 20 release, (and numbered “One” instead of 2020, I presume because the publisher has changed from Prime to Pyr), contains Dora’s “Conversations with the Sea Witch,” which imagines a friendship between two key characters from the fable of the Little Mermaid, both older and considerably wiser. You can also read the story free at

And also, Rich Horton’s The Year’s Best Fantasy and Science Fiction 2020, scheduled for a December release, will feature Dora’s novelette “A Country Called Winter,” which adds some modern twists and turns to the tale of the Snow Queen. “A Country Called Winter” was also a finalist for the 2020 Locus Awards. You can read it free at Lightspeed.

Congratulations and happy birthday to Dora Goss!
