One of my favorite books from 2012 was Claire Legrand's debut, a middle grade horror novel entitled The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls. I ended up following Legrand on twitter, and that is how I originally heard about The Cabinet of Curiosities website. Several authors who write middle grade speculative fiction were posting short stories as a collaborative project. They were GOOD short stories. Creepy and fantastical and haunting... all at once. I'd read them whenever I saw a link on twitter (often on my lunch break at work!). When I heard that the stories were being gathered up and published in one volume, I was delighted. And here it is, with a shiny cover and everything! The Cabinet of Curiosities: 40 Tales Brief & Sinister by Stefan Bachmann, Katherine Catmull, Claire Legrand and Emma Trevayne will by released by Greenwillow Books (HarperCollins) on May 27, 2014.
