William Pauley III, editor extraordinaire of The New Flesh Magazine has selected the ten best stories of 2009. There are some extraordinary stories in there, including some of my favourite writers like Jodi MacArthur, Angel Zapata and Laura Eno. And, to blast my own trumpet (after all, that’s a big part of blogs, right?), my own story “Submissions” has made the list.
I’ve got to say, I’m honoured, again. The New Flesh has very quickly proven itself to be a quality site, with some excellent stories. I’m sure that Mr Pauley’s job in putting together this list was a tough one.

Congrats, Sean! Submissions was fantastic and that is where I discovered your work ( or maybe it was FITD). What a great way to end a great year and kick off another.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. 😉 So glad to know you.
ps. and thanks for the shout out!
Likewise Jodi – and Rigged was such a cool crossover story, scary and visceral. Onwards and upwards for 2010.
Thanks for the shout out! It’s a nice way to meet new writers and I’m honored to be sharing the bill with stories such as yours.
Thanks, Sean! You’re right, it was really tough to pic my favorite ten of the year, but I stand by my picks. “Submissions” is the perfect example of why I started the new flesh – an outstanding odd and entertaining story that may have had trouble getting published anywhere else based on the format alone. Great job!
Thanks for your kind words.
