–Alison Moore, Author of the Man Booker shortlisted ‘The Lighthouse’
“Priya Sharma has been writing and publishing short stories for over a decade, and I’m delighted that she’s finally receiving the recognition her work deserves.
She’s extremely skillful in creating characters with whom we can empathize–no matter their deeds–leading her readers down roads of beauty and horror. I especially love her award-winning novelette ‘Fabulous Beasts,’ a perfect piece of storytelling.”
–Ellen Datlow, Best Horror of the Year series
