So it’s true I’ve resolved to post here more often. And yes, I know, I’ve said that before, but maybe it’ll actually happen this time. (What was that, a flying pink alligator? Oops, no, it was just a pig on a kite.)
Anyhow, I actually have some news again so not just meaningless waffle yet I hope. The Strange Bedfellows Anthology of Political Science Fiction (Bundoran Press), edited by Hayden Trenholm, in which I have a story, has been nominated for an Aurora Award (given to the best Canadian SF of the year). And no, I’ve not suddenly taken Canadian citizenship but Hayden is Canadian as is Bundoran Press and many of the other contributors are Canadian so I consider myself to be an honorary Canadian for today!
Congratulations to Hayden and all my fellow contributors! Such a shame though that Eugie Foster isn’t here to share it with us. Her story was the opening one in the volume and quite possibly the strongest although obviously I hope mine stands up well enough. She of course won a Nebula Award some years ago, an award better known to fans than the Aurora. But this is the first award for pro-writers I can claim any kind of association with, so for me at least this is a significant step.
