“The Last Novelist” is a Eugie Foster Memorial Award Finalist

I am very happy to announce that “The Last Novelist (or a Dead Lizard in the Yard)” has been selected as a finalist for the Eugie Foster Memorial Award. The finalists are:

From the Eugie Foster website:

The Eugie Foster Memorial Award for Short Fiction (or Eugie Award) celebrates the best in innovative fiction. This annual award is presented at Dragon Con, the nation’s largest fan-run convention.

The Eugie Award honors stories that are irreplaceable, that inspire, enlighten, and entertain. We will be looking for stories that are beautiful, thoughtful, and passionate, and change us and the field. The recipient is a story that is unique and will become essential to speculative fiction readers.

I am honored to remember Eugie Foster in this way.

 

 


“Demon in Aisle 6” is a Finalist for the Sippy Awards

Sippy_Face4My story “Demon in Aisle 6” (published in Nightmare Magazine) was a finalist for the Sippy Awards. The winner going to “When Your Child Strays From God” by Sam J. Miller. Of my story, they say:

Suicide and tragic queer love are perhaps easy triggers for getting people to feel deeply. But this story isn’t cheap or obvious, treats the subject matter with the respect and weight it deserves and delivers a devastating look at guilt and privilege and community and how all these things can shape a person, can shape shame and shape violence and shape hatred. It is the most outwardly violent and tragic of the stories on this list (perhaps because it appeared in a spec horror pub), but it is also a story that lodges in the brain and brought a great many tears to my eyes.

(thanks to Jeffrey Ford for pointing me to the link).
