When I mentioned that Dark Faith had been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award, I said that Catherynne Valente’s story  “The Days of Flaming Motorcycles” had been picked up for Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year 3.  Ellen compiles a list of Honorable Mentions, stories that were of significant note for each year.  A complete list of her honorable mentions can be found here and here.  Dark Faith got a few nods:

Ekaterina Sedia – “You Dream”
Nick Mamatas – “The Last Words of Dutch Schultz Jesus Christ”

Kelly Barnhill – “Hush”

Gary A. Braunbeck – “For My Next Trick I’ll Need a Volunteer”
Matt Cardin – “Chimeras & Grotesques”

And I was quite pleased to see that our promotional chapbook, Dark Faith:  Last Rites, received some love:

Nate Southard – “The Taste of Memories”

Sara Genge – “Little Gods”

Basically Dark Faith:  Last Rites was our P.S. to the Dark Faith anthology (because if I had included any more stories into Dark Faith, Jason Sizemore would have crawled through the Internet to choke me).  There are a few copies of Dark Faith:  Last Rites available if you order Dark Faith directly from Apex Books.

On the other hand, Paula Guran has announced the ToC for her Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror 2011, and some MORE Dark Faith stories represent:

Jay Lake – Mother Urban’s Booke of Dayes

Ekaterina Sedia – You Dream

Alright, I’m done pointing out many great stories may or may not be in this anthology (okay, that should probably read “I feel so validated as an editor.  yay!”).
