Three Honorable Mentions in 2017’s Year’s Best Horror

Posted in Uncategorized on September 19, 2018 by bloodandstardust

Three of my short stories published in 2017 were included in Ellen Datlow’s list of honorable mentions in her annual Year’s Best Horror Anthology.

The stories are:

Braum, Daniel “Palankar,” Nightscript III.
Braum, Daniel “The Fourth Bell,” The Beauty of Death volume II.
Braum, Daniel “This Is the Sound of Your Dreams Dying,” The Wish Mechanics.

I always recommend this yearly book both as a gateway for new readers and as a consistent excellent read for veteran readers. Thank you to Ellen Datlow for including three of my short stories on the list.

I am honored to receive this recognition.


“The World Works in Strange Ways” A Review of the Night Marchers from Notes from an Eclectic Reader

“…Braum’s stories are atypical in that there is hardly any traditional horror trope utilized: no gore, blood or spilled guts; violence and sexuality is generally described in subtle tones. His is “quiet” horror which is not to imply that Braum’s stories aren’t unsettling. It is the fantastical and highly original images Braum carefully crafts in his stories which seizes and holds the reader’s attention and imagination. What also makes Braum’s stories engaging is the restrained but ever-present throb beneath his various enigmatic fantasies of a pulsing tenderness and care for humanity. Readers are bound to enjoy all the tales in The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales as there isn’t a weak story among them…”
