Liked House of Leaves?

Check out this short story by Gemma Files and Stephen J. Berringer, currently nominated for a Locus Award. Good stuff.

There's some great stuff nominated, you can see the original recommendations page here

I need to track down this story: "The Far End of History", John C. Wright (The New Space Opera 2). I just finished Wright's Orphans of Chaos trilogy and loved it.

HTML mangle is preventing me from learning about this tantalizing piece of literature.

Should be all fixed up now. Manged to screw it up by exchanging ' where there should've been a ". Silly.

House of Leaves was wonderful. Thanks for sharing that other story, too. Looks really great so far. :)

House of Leaves is my favourite book of all time. Just as a good horror film should be best appreciated alone in a darkened room, I read House from cover to cover in a dark basement with only the creaking floorboards above me for company, like the fourth tier in the Navidson>Zampano>Johnny Truant hierarchy, as intended. Reading it that way terrified the buggery out of me, and I love it for that; no other book, horror or otherwise, has ever had such a profound effect.

And so this short story of yours shall be checked out as soon as I have time! Thanks for pointing it out.
