AWARD-WINNING FAERIE SERIES TAKES HOME THE PRIZE
CINCINNATI, OH Mundania Press (www.mundania.com) and editors Danielle Ackley-McPhail, L. Jagi Lamplighter, Lee C. Hillman, and Jeffrey Lyman are proud to announce that Bad-Ass Faeries 3: In All Their Glory, the third installment in the award-winning Bad-Ass Faeries anthology series, has received the 2011 EPIC Award for Best Anthology.
The volume includes twenty-one stories of military/conflict-themed faerie fiction by D.C. Wilson, Hildy Silverman, Chris Pisano & Brian Koscienski, Trisha Wooldridge & Christy Tohara, Lee C. Hillman, Robert E. Waters, Bernie Mojzes, C.J. Henderson, James Daniel Ross, Darren W. Pearce & Neal Levin, Jeffrey Lyman, L. Jagi Lamplighter, Kelly A. Harmon, Jason Franks, Patrick Thomas, David Lee Summers, David Sherman, Elaine Corvidae, James Chambers, John L. French, and Danielle Ackley-McPhail.
The Bad-Ass Faeries series came out of a desire to take faerie mythology back to its darker roots, when all was not goodness and light, but more mischief and mayhem. These faeries more closely resemble those of the ancient legends still passed down today in many parts of the world that haven’t lost touch with magic. A big part of faerie legends were the fae as warriors, an aspect which is represented in this latest volume.
“Book one, Bad-Ass Faeries, was a finalist for the 2007 Dream Realms Award, and book two, Just Plain Bad, won the 2009 EPPIE Award for Best Anthology,” says senior editor, Danielle Ackley-McPhail. “We are thrilled to have continued this trend with In All Their Glory.”
The timing of the award is quite advantageous as the editors have just recently begun work on the fourth book in the series: It’s Elemental. For submission details visit www.badassfaeries.com/submissions.htm.
