The Green Man Review heaps praise on Ellen Datlow’s urban fantasy anthology, Naked City. The reviewer says of the anthology as a whole, “Naked City definitely contains some of the best urban fantasy stories which I have had the pleasure of reading in a long while, and I fully expect that this anthology will be showing up in the nomination lists for next year’s round of awards.”
The anthology is chock full of fabulous authors, such as Jim Butcher, Holly Black, Lucius Shepard, Naomi Novik, Jeffrey Ford, Ellen Kushner, Richard Bowes, Delia Sherman, and many more talents. That’s why I’m so honored to have a story published in this anthology too! The Green Man Review says of my story, “In the poetic and haunting “The Bricks of Gelecek” by Matthew Kressel, a mysterious supernatural being becomes fascinated by a young woman in a medieval desert city.”
The anthology comes out in July, but you can pre-order it on Amazon. And if you are in Massachusetts, you can see a few of us read from Naked City at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, Massachusetts on July 14th.
