Skinder’s Veil

Kelly has a new story — “Skinder’s Veil” — in Ellen Datlow’s new anthology When Things Get Dark: Stories inspired by Shirley Jackson. Signed copies are available from Book Moon.


Kelly contributed to the 20th anniversary anthology of Diagram:

a tarot deck: an exquisite literary object and a usable tarot deck usable for divination. As with our 10th anniversary poker deck, our contributors randomly selected cards and created new works in the spirit of the cards they drew. Unlike most of our anthologies, this features all new work and celebrates 20 damn years of publishing DIAGRAM, one of the oldest (and best we daresay) literary journals around.

The 20th anniversary deck features 78 tarot-sized (2.75″ x 4.75″) cards in the four suits (wands, swords, cups, pentacles) and the major arcana in a custom box.


A Canon Which Includes The Cannon

Laura Miller chose Magic for Beginners for Vulture’s Premature Attempt at the 21st Century Canon:

“Any collection of Kelly Link’s stories will do. They shimmer in the borderlands of myth, genre, and literature. A convenience store caters to the mild-mannered zombies who emerge from a nearby gorge and clumsily attempt to shop. A group of teenagers bond over an elusive TV series. A suburban family becomes slowly and methodically alienated from every possession they own. Link’s stories can make you shudder, then laugh, then feel like a god has just walked past your window.” —Laura Miller

Dread and Delight

Kelly’s latest story, “The White Cat’s Divorce,” will be published in the catalog for an exhibit, “Dread and Delight: Fairy Tales in an Anxious World,” opening later this month at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC.
After its Greensboro debut, Dread & Delight will travel to the Faulconer Gallery at Grinnell College in Iowa and the Akron Art Museum in Ohio.
