Introduction S.P. Miskowski's debut novel Knock Knock and her novella Delphine Dodd were finalists for the Shirley Jackson Award. Both books are part of the Skillute Cycle which includes two more novellas, Astoria, and In the Light. All four books are published by Omnium Gatherum in Los Angeles, with cover art by Russell Dickerson. Rated by critic Peter Tennant as "one of the most interesting and original writers to emerge in recent years," Miskowski has been published in Supernatural Tales, Black Static, Identity Theory, Other Voices, and the anthologies Detritus, Little Visible Delight, October Dreams 2, Cassilda's Song, and The Hyde Hotel. Her work has received a Swarthout Award and two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. Dim Shores is set to publish Miskowski's "Stag in Flight" as a chapbook with cover art and illustrations by Nick Gucker. Her novelette "Muscadines" is included in the Dunhams Manor Press hardcover series, with cover art and illustrations by Dave Felton.
