Honorable Mentions ’09 (so far)

Well, I haven’t seen this year’s volume yet, but it seems that for the 2010 edition of Gardner Dozois Year’s Best (the one dealing with publications for 2009), two of my stories got Honorable Mentions: “Cai and Her Ten Thousand Husbands,” and “Of Melei, of Ulthar.” Not bad, though I’m hoping I can get a story into the next volume again!

That’s in addition to “Of Melei, of Ulthar” making the British Fantasy Association’s long-list for awards in 2010 and  the Locus 2009 Recommended Reading List, and “Cai and Her Ten Thousand Husbands” receving an Honorable Mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year 2009 (Vol. 2). So for a year with relatively limited fiction output, not bad.

(And by the way, though one should never reponse to critics, I did get a kick out of someone finally explaining to J.C what he’d missed on “Of Melei, Of Ulthar,” in the comments section at the bottom of the page where the story is published at Clarksworld.)
