For Your Judgement and Sheer Enjoyment

It’s that time of year again, when we authors crow about what we’ve accomplished. More specifically, which publications are eligible for award nominations.

In the Best Novel category, I of course am super-duper-phantasmagorically proud of Me on Infinity release dayNoumenon Infinity, which is eligible for awards such as the Nebula and the Hugo.

 Vanhi’s hands flew away from her note-riddled tablet, a clear sign of attrition. “Is this it?” She swiveled her chair toward Jamal and folded her legs beneath her like a small child. “You always hear stories about the robot apocalypse, but you never think it’ll happen to you.”

 

In the best Short Story category I am proud of the scope and depth of emotion I was able to achieve in Discard the Sun, for it has Failed Us, which is flash-length. You can find it for free here: https://uncannymagazine.com/article/discard-the-sun-for-it-has-failed-us/ DqxD2wZW4AATHXe

If you are nominating for any awards this year, I would be delighted if you’d consider my work. As always, thank you and happy reading!

Nightmare Artist Spotlight Interview: Reiko Murakami

First, huge congrats to everyone at Lightspeed on their Hugo win! After lots of near-misses, it’s nice to see the magazine bring home an award.

Over at Lightspeed’s sister magazine, Nightmare, My interview with Reiko Murakami (this month’s cover artist) has gone up!

MJNL: A lot of your personal horror work seems to center around merging humans and beasts. What is it about these hybrid forms that appeals to you, or alternately, scares you?

RM: I’m interested in capturing a character’s internal struggle. Over the course of the years I found it feels more appropriate to let my characters free from regular human bodies. I don’t necessarily try to make their bodies look scary. The design is a result of my attempt to capture their emotions.
