Last week, those who backed the anthology Mother: Tales of Love and Terror got some awesome news: we have, in fact, chosen all the stories that will be in the final anthology which is now available to preorder through the Weird Little Worlds website.
This year, we projected more submission than the 420 we received last year, despite the fact that we only talked of adding 7 non-featured stories to fill out our star-studded book. Still, there were 670 submissions, which was quite an undertaking to complete in 6 weeks. Our incredible army of slush readers pulled together and provided over 1400 personalized reads and reviews of the stories submitted, allowing us to choose the very best of the best.
