I am working on a near-cost paperback book. By “near-cost” I mean that I will round it up to the nearest 50 cents. The goal is to have it come in at $4.00 or less. I’m aiming for $3.50. I am going to have omit some of the content from the paperback to keep the cost down, so the paperback will only include the list and the interviews. I’ll post when it is available.


The eBook contains the following:

  • 60 Black Women in Horror (the list)
  • Interview with Linda Addison
  • Interview with Darlene Black
  • Interview with Jemiah Jefferson
  • Interview with Nnedi Okorafor
  • Interview with A.L. Peck
  • Interview with Sumiko Saulson
  • Interview with L. Marie Wood

Plus, additional bonus materials that will not appear in the print edition.

  • Short Story by Crystal Connor, “Amber’s New Friend”
  • Short Story by Sumiko Saulson, “The Last”
  • Essay by David Watson, “On L.A. Banks and Octavia Butler”
