We interrupt your otherwise peaceful Sunday afternoon to share the news that for the second year in a row I have been nominated for the WSFA Small Press Award. This time the nomination is for “Coca Xocolatl,” from ReDeus: Divine Tales, edited by Robert Greenberger and Aaron Rosenberg (Crazy Eight Press), the first volume of the ReDeus shared universe series.
My thanks to both Bob and Aaron, not only for accepting my story into their anthology, but for creating such a cool world in which to write (I’ve continued the same character with stories in the subsequent two volumes, both of which came out this year).
This is a very wonderful way to begin the last week of August, and to send me off to San Antonio for an awesome Worldcon.
The winner will be announced at Capclave, which runs October 11-13, 2013.
Other nominees include:
“Astrophilia” by Carrie Vaughn.
“The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species” by Ken Liu.
“Bottled Spirits” by Pamela K. Kinney.
“Good Hunting” by Ken Liu.
“Mornington Ride” by Jason Nahrung.
“The Six Million Dollar Mermaid” by Hildy Silverman.
I’m really pleased to be on this list again, and to once more get to represent the small press. I was already planning on attending Capclave, and I’m looking forward to seeing the other nominees there too.
