A new China Miéville short story will appear in the anthology Dead Letters

stampNot huge news, this, but worth mentioning. As if 28 stories weren’t enough for us, there’s another one by China Miéville coming out next year in the anthology Dead Letters, edited by the horror writer Conrad Williams. It seems to be a collection of letter-themed (and probably mostly epistolary) speculative/horror fiction stories.

Miéville’s story is actually a collaboration with the American author Maria Dahvana Headley, and it’s called “Ledge Bants”. That’s probably a reference to UK slang (“ledge” = “legendary”, “bants” = “banter”), but I could be way off the mark there.

I’ll check out the anthology when it’s released and perhaps review the story. If you want to see the book’s whole table of contents, check it out here!

Dead Letters is out from Titan Books in April 2016.
