Locus Recommends…/Long-Listed

I’m pleased to report that Locus Magazine placed my Abyss and Apex story, “Snatch Me Another,” about a device that allows items to be pulled across from alternate dimensions, on its year-end Recommended List. Many thanks to Locus‘s editors and reviewers for acknowledging the story.

In other news, I also recently learned my story, “The Scent of Their Arrival,” which appeared in Interzone #219, made the “long list” of nominated stories for the British Science Fiction Award for Best Short Fiction, though it did not make the final cut. This is my second time being “long-listed” for a BSFA. (My 2006 Interzone story, “Longing for Langalana” was the first). Thanks so much to the BSFA members who nominated the story.
