KILLER OF HOGS, long-listed for Ellen Datlow's 2022 Best Horror of the Year

Not sure which is cooler, that FIVE stories from Dark Peninsula Press's VIOLENT VIXENS anthology (edited by, well, the clearly great-at-editing-anthologies Aric Sundquist) made Ellen Datlow's long list for Best Horror of 2022 or that Datlow not only read one of my odd stories but also apparently liked it.

The VIOLENT VIXENS stories that made the cut include:

“perfectly in his mind that it felt like a memory. “Who killed her?” he asked quietly. Odilia stared straight ahead, saying nothing. The hymn ended and Whillans raised his hands. “Let us pray.”
Mark Wheaton, Fields of Wrath

“You have to know the difference between what’s of the world and what’s of God. You have to want to know what he has to say. That’s why it’s best to pray in silence. He waits for you.”
Mark Wheaton, Fields of Wrath

“Roberto DeMatteis had seven species”
