We uh… BEAT OUT INTERZONE, APEX AND CLARKESWORLD…
In fact our total is almost their combined total…
I am squeeing and very happy to announce that we have been nominated for a Hugo in the Best SemiProzine Category!
My very first short story acceptance on a story I both worked my ass off on, and loved.
“The Ace of Knives” has been accepted for Postscript To Darkness 6.
A pyro in Team Fortress 2 named “The Ace of Knaves”, Amal El-Mohtar’s “Wing” and “Hoarding” planted the seed, well-timed words watered it, nourished it, made it grow.
And it left the nest, found a home.
I’ve squealed thanks on Twitter already, run amuck, hit things while running amuck, and ran amuck some more. So.
It will be published early next year.
More details then.
