Angel Leigh McCoy (SFWA & HWA member) loves horror, dark fantasy, and steampunk. Her fiction has appeared in numerous media, and in 2011, she has stories in the anthologies: Beast Within 2, Fear of the Dark, Growing Dread: Biopunk Visions and Clockwork Chaos, among others.
During the day, she gets paid to be a gamer. She is a writer/game designer at ArenaNet, part of a vast team effort to make the coolest MMORPG ever: Guild Wars 2. At night, she’s the head editor at WilyWriters.com and recently edited Night-Mantled: the Best of Wily Writers, volume 1. She began her career writing for White Wolf, Wizards of the Coast, FASA, and other RPG companies. At Xbox.com, she was the correspondent Wireless Angel.
Angel lives with Boo, Simon, and Lapis Lazuli (kitties) in Seattle, where the long, dark winters feed her penchant for all things spooky and cozy.
This anthology presents the best speculative fiction published in 2010 at WilyWriters.com. Magic has returned, technology has abandoned us, aliens have invaded us, or we ourselves have evolved—or devolved—beyond our ability to predict.
This anthology of short speculative fiction stories from exceptionally wily writers will take you from looking over your shoulder to pondering the wonders of the universe and back again.
The WilyWriters.com Speculative Fiction podcast chooses only the best two stories per month from its submissions. This volume collects Year #1’s best of the best.
