About the Author

Priya Sharma is a doctor who lives in the UK. Her short stories have appeared in several magazines including Black Static, Interzone, Albedo One, and On Spec. She's been reprinted in Paula Guran's Best Dark Fantasy and Ellen Datlow's Year's Best Horror Volume 4.


"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

"The only fault I find with Priya Sharma's work is that there's not more of it! Her stories range in theme and even style, but each is beautifully written. This debut collection is well worth having."

--Paula Guran, The Year's Best Dark Fantasy & Horror series

"Priya Sharma is a consummate storyteller. She writes from the heart, with passion, warmth and authority. Her stories, focusing largely on familial relationships and traditions, brim not only with ideas but with humanity, and her characters are so vividly and exquisitely wrought that they seem to live and breathe beyond the confines of the page. Like Stephen King and Alice Munro, she has the ability to convey so much in prose that is concise, elegant and unfussy, and as a result her stories offer you the best of both worlds: they are both instantly accessible and exhilaratingly profound."

--Mark Morris, Author of The Obsidian Heart Trilogy / Editor of New Fears

"Priya Sharma explores liminality and otherness with skill and verve in her engaging and haunting stories."

--Alison Moore, Author of the Man Booker-shortlisted The Lighthouse
