There, just behind his teeth, is what I’m looking for: ugly thoughts, viscous as boiled tendon.

Today we spotlight two stories of eating souls, Crystal Lynn Hilbert’s “Soul of Soup Bones” and Alyssa Wong’s “Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers” (from which today’s title comes):

Unlike most of the stories in these anthologies, both of these stories have been published before: you can read “Soul of Soup Bones” in Apex Magazine and “Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers” in the 2015 Queers Destroy Horror! issue of Nightmare. It won the 2015 Nebula Award for Best Short Story and the 2016 World Fantasy Award for Short Fiction!

 

About the Authors

Crystal Lynn Hilbert lives in the forgotten backwaters of Western Pennsylvania and subsists mostly on old trade paperbacks and tea. A fan of things magical and mythical, her stories tend towards a peculiar blend of high magic and Eddic poetry. You can read her latest stories “Oath Breaker Priest to an Almost God” and “Rediscovering the Lich: A Study on the Lost Art of Self-Reanimation” in Betwixt Magazine.

Alyssa Wong lives in Chapel Hill, NC, and really, really likes crows. She was a finalist for the 2016 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Her fiction has been shortlisted for the Hugo Award, the Bram Stoker Award, the Locus Award, and the Shirley Jackson Award. Her work has been published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, Nightmare Magazine, Black Static, and Tor.com, among others. Alyssa can be found on Twitter as @crashwong.
