“We’ve been eyeing Tracie’s fiction for some time,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG. “Our interest was particularly piqued with her contribution to Cthulhu: Land of the Long White Cloud anthology, ‘The Shadow Over Tarehu Cove’, and her reputation in the Antipodean dark fiction community. Acquiring her collection is a highly satisfying result for us.”

This collection of horror and dark fantasy short stories spans nearly nine years of published work as well as some original pieces. The themes and settings are diverse, but one common thread runs through the stories – they all feature women. Women as protagonists. Women as doomed heroines. Woman as villains. Mothers and spinsters, wives and prostitutes, sisters and witches. And in some stories, monsters in feminine form.

Tracie McBride is a New Zealander who lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and three children.  Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in over 80 print and electronic publications, including the Stoker Award-nominated anthologies Horror for Good and Horror Library Volume 5. Her debut collection Ghosts Can Bleed contains much of the work that earned her a Sir Julius Vogel Award, and her work has been shortlisted for the Aurealis Awards and the Australasian Shadows Awards.  Visitors to her blog are welcome at http://traciemcbridewriter.wordpress.com/.
