  1. This brings into question: where is the line between dark fantasy and a fantasy/horror blend? Or do you consider them the same? “The Soul in the Bell Jar,” a novelette by KJ Kabza published in the Nov-Dec 2013 issue of The Mag of F&SF, is tough to peg down. I personally like genre and subgenre labels, so I had a bit of a dilemma when I tried to blurb it on Twitter and my blog. I finally went with “A brilliant blend of dark fantasy and horror through a cross of stained glass and translucent prose.” It’s not quite horror, but it’s definitely dark fantasy.
