day_blackI had the pleasure of reading some of these as a judge for the Dwayne McDuffie award and all are worth checking out. Shaft has gotten a lot of positive support here there and everywhere. I’d also like to note that Day Black comes out from Rosarium  and it’s a very well written vampire story about a slave who is turned and is a tattoo artist in the present day. It has a very unusual style.
