The Ladies of Horror Fiction team is pleased to announce the 2019 Ladies of Horror Fiction Award for Best Collection.
Little Paranoias by Sonora Taylor
Is it a knock on the door, or a gust of wind? A trick of the light, or someone who’ll see what you’ve done?
Little Paranoias features twenty tales of the little things that drive our deepest fears. It tells the stories of terror and sorrow, lust at the end of the world and death as an unwanted second chance. It dives into the darkest corners of the minds of men, women, and children. It wanders into the forest and touches every corner of the capital. Everyone has something to fear — but after all, it’s those little paranoias that drive our day-to-day.

We reached out to Sonora for a few words, and here is what she had to say!
Thank you so much! I love that these little stories have wiggled their way into so many readers’ brains and hearts.
Ooh, maybe I’ll write another creature feature next … Many thanks to Nina D’Arcangela and The Sirens Call for publishing several of these stories. Thanks to Lyn Worthen, who first accepted “Hearts are Just ‘Likes’” for Camden Park Press’s “Quoth the Raven.” Thanks to Sheri White, who introduced me to the Facebook groups that introduced me to these women, and who was my cheerleader early on. Thanks to Evelyn Duffy for her amazing editing work and to Doug Puller for his graphic design and illustration work. Thanks as always to my parents for their support, and to my husband for his love and his presence in my life.
Stay tuned as we continue to announce the 2019 Ladies of Horror Fiction Awards!
