Shadow Publishing tells me that its Creeping Crawlers, the 2015 Allen Ashley-edited anthology that includes my story “Little Helpers” alongside a shedload of far better stuff, is going into a second edition, and with a new cover, this time by Peter Coleborn:

Peter Tennant, in his story-by-story review of the book for Black Static, was kind enough to say:
John Grant’s ‘Little Helpers’ is a pure delight, as two knights with a penchant for pillage and slaughter find that they may have bit off more than they can chew. Told with tongue firmly in cheek, it’s a sly, amusing tale in which you never doubt the author has something nasty up his sleeve for his protagonists, and waiting for their comeuppance is a pleasure.
No accounting for taste, eh? Meanwhile, at Rising Shadow, “Seregil of Rhiminee” said of the book as a whole:
Creeping Crawlers is an intriguing and unique anthology filled with depth, style and originality. If you enjoy reading well written speculative fiction, I strongly urge you to read this anthology, because it’s one of the best speculative fiction anthologies of the year.
