Booth tale to be in anthology

A story by Bemidji author Roy C. Booth will be published in "Northern Lights: 20 MinnSpec Tales," a speculative fiction anthology to be published and released in late fall by Sam's Dot Publishing of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The anthology will feature stories in science fiction, fantasy and horror genres, written by members of the Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers, which comprises 264 writers.

"Sabine Baring-Gould and the Werewolf" is an imagined continuation of Sabine Baring-Gould's introduction from "The Book of Werewolves" (1865), "a book that is to hardcore werewolf fans is to what 'Dracula' (1897) is to vampire fans," Booth said.

"Gould (1834-1924) has over 500 publications attributed to him and has his own present-day you-can-pay-to-join society," he said. "His grandson, William S. Baring-Gould (1913-1967), ironically, was also one of the premiere Sherlock Holmes scholars of all time."

Booth's story was originally published as the cover story of the October 2009 issue of "Necrotic Tissue."
