Michael Vella, Hopefull Monster’s man in Malta, sold his story “Valletta, City of Guilt” to World SF Blog. Michael has a talent for spinning vivid turns of phrase, and this supernatural fantasy, set in 19th century Malta, is rich in historical details. I don’t know much about World SF Blog, but it’s edited by writer Lavie Tidhar and was nominated for a World Fantasy Award in 2010, so it certainly has some credentials. Keep your eyes open for Michael’s story—I’m certain it won’t disappoint.
