Horror World is running my short story "Wake Up Naked Monkey You're Going To
Die" as their fiction feature this month:
My softcover story collection SPARKS AND SHADOWS is coming out in late April or
Nalo Hopkinson wrote the introduction, and each copy is signed by her (and
myself, of course). It's 356 pages long and contains 17 stories, 7 poems, and 4
humor essays. It's got something for everybody: science fiction, fantasy,
horror, paranormal romance, even mainstream fiction.
Here's what people have said about it:
"Lucy Snyder's writings are a sampler of fine candies: alternately dark,
textured, and deliciously erotic."
� Matthew Warner, author of Eyes Everywhere
"Lucy Snyder's Sparks and Shadows is everything you could want in a short story
collection. Elegant, beautiful prose, deep emotional writing and powerful
stories. Do yourself a favor and grab this one!"
� James A. Moore, author of Serenity Falls
