I made the James White Award longlist

While I didn’t win anything, or even make the shortlist, I was pleased to see that my longish short story, “The View from Driftwise Spindle,” made the recently-announced longlist for the James White Award.

The James White Award, for those who aren’t familiar, is a contest for new authors of SFF which includes a monetary prize and publication in Interzone. There were about 255 entries this year, and only 30 stories on the longlist—which means I was at least in something like the top 10%.

Congratulations to those who made the top five, and to the winner, Mack Leonard, who was just announced today!
