Ellen Datlow Interviewed at Nossa Morte

Ellen Datlow (yes that Ellen Datlow) has a wonderful interview up at Nossa Morte. I think all aspiring writers need to read this one.

I want to find a way "around the slush pile" (from her answer to a question about a recent open call for submissions). Sounds like the only way to do that, my friends, it to produce a quality body of work and catch the attention of someone important.

I can control some things in life (e.g., writing every day); others, I must leave to the fates.

Getting noticed by Ellen Datlow is like finding the Holy Grail. Note to self: must work harder.

Interesting interview. Thanks for sharing.

That Darkness anthology looks like a must read. It'd be good to catch up some of the must reads in the field, I guess.

Cate - you have forthcoming stories in Postscripts, Space and Time...I think you're on the right path.

Benjamin - I thought Darkness looked good, too--at least to see what Datlow considers the best.
