2019 Works for Award Consideration

Posted by on Nov 18, 2019 in awards, Blog | Comments Off on 2019 Works for Award Consideration

The end of the year is nigh. Time for a retrospective with the vain hope that I might garner some award nominations from my fellow writers.

Short stories

The major story I’m promoting for awards is “The Blighted Godling of Company Town H” published at Beneath Ceaseless Skies #268 the very first week of 2019. It can be read online and is also available for free in podcast form, read by Tina Connolly.

My other new stories this year include:
“Consider the Monsters” in Diabolical Plots;
“The Wind Knows All” in Nature
– “By Footpad and Clenched Paw” in Monarchies of Mau: Tales of Excellent Cats available in PDF and print at DriveThruFiction and in ebook at Amazon
“Clouds Gleam Across Her Eyes” in Daily Science Fiction
– Letter Z in F is for Fairy
“A Picture is Worth” in Nature
“The Peculiar Gravity of Home” in Future SF Issue 2; available in print and ebook
– “Awaken My Bones Old and New” in Gorgon: Stories of Emergence


If you’re a member of SFPA and reading works for consideration for the Rhysling and Dwarf Stars, please keep these poems in mind–but most of all, this first one, which is a dream publication for me!
