Gregory Frost’s latest novel, Fitcher’s Brides (Tor Books), is a recasting of the fairy tale of Bluebeard as a terrifying story of faith and power in 19th century New York State. Fantasy author Jeffrey Ford wrote of it: “Just phenomenal. The story retains some of its fairy tale nature but it takes no prisoners. I heard him read a piece of this at the KGB in New York before I got the book, and the prose sobered me up out of a solid drunk.” Frost has been a finalist for almost every major award in the fantasy field: Nebula Award, James Tiptree Award, Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for Short Fiction, Hugo Award, International Horror Guild Award, and the World Fantasy Award. His shorter work has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov’s Magazine, Weird Tales, Realms of Fantasy, and more; and in numerous award-winning anthologies such as Nalo Hopkinson’s Mojo: Conjure Stories; Snow White, Blood Red, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. Some of his work has been included in the Best New Horror collections edited by Stephen Jones. Frost’s latest stories are “Tengu Mountain,” in Datlow & Windling’s anthology, The Faery Reel, “So Coldly Sweet, So Deadly Fair,” in Weird Tales magazine, and “Dub,” in Weird Trails, a faux-1930s pulp magazine anthology edited by Darrell Schweitzer. In June 2005 Golden Gryphon Press published a collection of his short fiction, Attack of the Jazz Giants & Other Stories.
