Cinema Spec Honorable Mentions in Datlow's Best Horror of the Year

I'm delighted to report that two stories from Cinema Spec: Tales of Hollywood and Fantasy, edited by yours truly, have received honorable mentions in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, Volume 2. They are Sarah Brandel's "A Life in Pictures" and Lisa Morton's "The End." Sarah's story, which I didn't peg as horror, is about a man shipwrecked on a desert island (attention, Lost fans), with only a crate of films to help him survive. Lisa's story, which is probably the creepiest in the anthology, is about another man alone at the end...of something.
