What’s New - May 2010


Not much to report since March, and what there is involves Yaggoth-Voor.


My fantasy tale received a nomination in the short story category for the Canadian Prix Aurora Award, as well as a nomination in the inaugural Harper’s Pen Award. Sadly, the story didn’t advance beyond the initial round in either venue. Still, nice to be considered.


Three additional reviews of Rage of the Behemoth appeared recently, each favourable. The anthology, from Rogue Blades Entertainment, continues to garner heavy praise.


Jaym Gates of Wings Lifting Wide said, “Rage of the Behemoth is about as far from the recent, often-parodied excuse for Sword and Sorcery as it can be and still be listed in the same genre.”


Gustavo Bondoni wrote on, “There were some stories that I found to be truly excellent: ... Bruce Durham’s “Yaggoth Voor” tells the tale of some sailors who come upon the wrong set of mischievous twins in a marvellous first-person narrative.”


And Luke Forney of Luke Reviews said,”This is one of the best anthologies I have read in a long time.” About my story he had this to say: “The best story in the anthology, a tale of Mortlock the Footman, this one focuses on a wrecked ship, an injured little girl, and a beast that seems to be toying with the crew. Wonderful dialogue, spot-on characterization, and a fast-paced plot, all wrapped up with a style that works perfectly for this type of story, makes this a true gem, and one of the best fantasy shorts I have read this year.”


Can’t beat that kind of endorsement.
