“And When She Was Bad” has been accepted at Nossa Morte.  The web site hints that the next issue will be out February 2009.

The story actually grew out of an assignment for my Japanese Monsters class that I titled, “The Monster is a Half-Self”, all about the relationship between the monster and the final girl.  I really like the trope of the final girl, both in its affirmations and its subversions.  Then again I have always been a fan of analyzing gender in horror.
