Undertow Press have revealed the table of contents and the cover of volume two of The Year’s Best Weird Fiction; and here’s me not having even finished my review of volume one! Yet again it looks like a fantastic roster has been put together -this time by guest editor Kathe Koja, who was interviewed recently on the Lovecraft Ezine, and who is a fine author in her own right.
Here’s the table of contents, which isn’t 100% finalised as Kathe is still waiting to secure rights to one last story, and the beautiful cover with art by Tomasz Alen Kopera.
