She Walks in Shadow - Paula R. Stiles, Silvia Moreno-Garcia

World Fantasy Award 2016.

Edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R. Stiles.

They emerge from the shadows, to claim the night...

Women from around the world delve into Lovecraftian depths, penning and illustrating a variety of Weird horrors. The pale and secretive Lavinia Whatley wanders through the woods, Asenath is a precocious teenager with an attitude, and the Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Nitocris has found a new body in distant America. And do you have time to hear a word from our beloved mother Shub-Niggurath?

Defiant, destructive, terrifying, and harrowing, the women in She Walks in Shadows are monsters and mothers, heroes and devourers. Observe them in all their glory. Iä! Iä!
