Out later this month from Fantasia Divinity Publishing, Curse of the Gods, an anthology of Greek myths re-imagined, will feature my short story “The Wrong Girl.”
From the publisher:
Epic wars fought in the name of the gods, mighty heroes rising up to slay the beasts; Greek legends are filled with tales of love and adventure. However, time is a fickle mistress and legends change over the centuries. Was Persephone kidnapped by Hades, the God of the Underworld, or did she go willingly? Was Medusa really the heartless beast everyone imagines her to be? Is Aphrodite a carefree goddess filled with love and happiness or does she long for something more? Experience some of the classic Greek myths like you never have before, re-imagined and brought to life by these 18 talented authors!

I’m beyond excited for this antho, releasing soon — partly because my story “The Good Liar” is in it, but mainly because I really, really want to read the other stories. The review can be found here, although it’s quoted in full below.
“In this potent but uneven anthology, 17 authors tackle the themes of trauma and survival as interpreted through various science fiction and fantasy settings and tropes. “One thing our genre has always excelled at is offering a different lens, a startling angle of vision, a new perspective,” Mohanraj (The Stars Change) writes in her introduction. The sources of trauma are familiar, however, including physical and sexual abuse, addiction, bigotry, and grief. Standout stories include Tonya Liburd’s “A Stitch in Time,” in which a young man uses his gift of time travel to relive moments with his deceased girlfriend only to sink into an addictive pattern, and Evey Brett’s “Fell Child,” in which a dutiful son makes sacrifices in order to save his dying father before discovering the cure isn’t worth the cost. In Erik Gern’s “Mold,” grown children must confront the physical manifestation of their abusive father’s lingering legacy. Jes Rausch’s “The Art of Quilting” sees a nonbinary individual constantly traveling across the solar system to escape their oppressive, intolerant family. Many of the tales take literary or experimental approaches, and both prose and content will challenge the reader, but each survivor’s struggle and triumph is worth the effort.”

It’s gratifying that two of the three readers who’ve reviewed Hero’s Best Friend over at Goodreads have cited “The Masterless” as a favourite/stand out story.
