Million Writers Notable Stories of 2008



The southStory Million Writers Notable Stories of 2008 were announced, and I was honored to see that my Abyss & Apex short story, Snatch Me Another, made this list of genre and literary stories. Huge thanks, once again, to Wendy Delmater and the editors at A&A for publishing this story, which also made the Locus Recommended List for 2008 and Rich Horton’s Unplugged: The Year’s Best Online Fiction for 2008.

I was also tickled to see stories on the list by friends and fellow Altered Fluidians K. Tempest Bradford, Kris Dikeman and Alaya Dawn Johnson.
