A Debt Repaid and Sojourn for Ephah

A Debt Repaid (which was my contribution to Lightspeed’s Women Destroy Science Fiction issue) is now up for a quarter at QuarterReads.

Also, did you know that Intergalactic Medicine Show posts its previous issue for free when the new issue comes out?  I didn’t!  I found out after  Sojourn for Ephah was reprinted in this special (also free) sampler issue.  Click here to see IGMS’s ‘Free Issues’ page.

Stories (by Me and Others) Eligible for Awards this Year

Hello all!  If you by any chance are nominating for either the Nebulas or Hugos, here is a list of my publications from 2014 that are awards-eligible (which excludes  reprints and shared-world stories).

I’ve linked to the stories that are available on line.

Best Short Story category:

Elsa’s Spheres, sci-fi (IGMS)

Imma Gonna Finish You Off, sci-fi humor (Galaxy’s Edge)

A Debt Repaid, sci-fi flash fiction (Lightspeed Magazine, WDSF special issue)

Lenora of the Low, dark fantasy (Fantasy for Good anthology)

Best Novelette category:

Balance, sci-fi (Baen.com) (also won second in the Jim Baen Memorial Writing Contest)

 

And here’s a list of other people’s short work that I recommend. I’m specifically choosing lesser-known pieces that I think deserve far more attention than they’ve received.

Best Short Story category:

The Thing About Shapes To Come by Adam-Troy Castro, sci-fi (Lightspeed Magazine)

Rules For Killing Monsters by David Sklar, dark fantasy (Nightmare Magazine)

Unfilial Child by Laurie Tom, fantasy (Streets of Shadows anthology)

Intersection by Gio Clairval, sci-fi flash fiction (Galaxy’s Edge)

A Dragon’s Doula by M.K. Hutchins, fantasy (IGMS)

Best Novella:

On the Winds of the Rub’ Al-Khali (part 1, part 2), by Stephen Gaskell (IGMS) (ETA: NOTE.  Only part 1 is technically eligible for nomination this year.  The novella will be eligible as a whole next year if part 1 does not make the ballot this year.)

 

And there are a few wonderful people I think you should consider for the Campbell Award for best new writer. I admit to a bias here, seeing as how they are some of my WotF vol. 29 classmates, but I genuinely think they deserve recognition this early in their careers:

Andrea G. Stewart (Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Daily Science Fiction, and more)

Tina Gower (Galaxy’s Edge, Black Denim Lit, and more)

Brian Trent (Apex, Analog, and more)

Shannon Peavey (Urban Fantasy magazine, Daily Science Fiction, and more)

 

Go forth, read, nominate!

Sojourn for Ephah to appear in IGMS

Hi all!

Remember that first pro-sale I made a about a month ago (ETA: guess it was two months–how time flies)? Well, now that some of the official business has been taken care of, I’d like to announce that my sale was to Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show.

The issue it’s scheduled to appear in should be up soon. Keep an eye on my blog for all the details once it’s officially released.
