Shirley Jackson Awards interview Jason Ockert

TIR staff

In April, we announced that Jason Ockert's dark and fantastic short story "Max" (which appeared in TIR 41/1) had been nominated for a Shirley Jackson Award, an annual prize for outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic.

While the SJA folks haven't yet chosen a winner, they chatted with Jason about his story and posted the interview here: Must be a good sign, right?

PS, If you're wondering about the crows, read an excerpt from "Max."
