Reviews and Awards

"With Femmes de la Brume, editor Nicole Thomas has assembled a collection of stories that makes Chicks in Chain-mail look like The Little Match Girl; the stories here are daring and evocative, and will challenge your preconceptions about the fantasy genre. A dynamite collection."

~ Gary A. Braunbeck, author of The Indifference of Heaven and Graveyard People: The Collected Cedar Hill Stories, Volume 1

"I sleep next to a woman every night, but would never claim to know what's in a woman's head or heart. After reading Femmes de la Brume, I'll be a lot more polite, and sleeping with one eye open."

~ M. Stephen Lukac, author of Oogie Boogie Central


Femmes de la Brume (Excerpt)


Femmes de la Brume . . . Women of the Mist . . .


Welcome, Dear Reader, to the brainchild of L.J. Blount aka Myth Spinner: a pi?ce de r’sistance of exceptional fiction featuring haunting female characters inscribed by women of speculative fiction. A brilliant ride through a tangled web of deceit, betrayal, victory . . . and mist. By his choice in authors, Myth began the magic, we wove the tales and the tales became the Mist.

It was an honor to work with such talent. I am forever indebted to Myth for inviting me to contribute, then trusting me to edit the tales within. I am only one of the ladies, seventeen others contributed. What started as an anthology, quickly became much more. The Mist began to take over, weaving in and out of our stories, consuming the book.


Femmes de la Brume . . . Women of the Mist . . .


Take my hand, Dear Reader; allow me to guide you into the heart of Femmes de la Brume. On our journey, we?ll meet various warriors, elderly women and seemingly normal women.

But are they?

When you?ve finish reading, beware when the fog rolls in late at night. For once you?ve feasted upon the words, the Mist takes control. The hair on your neck will stand and chills will race the path of your spine.

These tales were born from imaginations of beautiful mystical women. Separately, they shine, command attention?together, they become the Mist, inhabiting your dreams . . . or perhaps nightmares.


Femmes de la Brume . . . Women of the Mist . . .


Come, Dear Reader, take my hand, hold tight and I shall introduce you to the women of speculative fiction and the characters that will forever reside within the Mist.
