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.
