We went to Prairie Lights as a reward for all the relentless packing (moving for the fifth time in a year — this is not a drill!), and I spotted a copy of Gardner Dozois’s Year’s Best SF on display. I looked at the Honorable Mentions section in the back and it appears I have THREE honorable mentions for work that came out in 2015:
“Archival Testimony Fragments/minersong,” from Uncanny Magazine
“Geometries of Belonging,” from Beneath Ceaseless Skies
“How to Remember to Forget to Remember the Old War,” from Lightspeed QDSF
I am so happy with these, but especially with “Geometries of Belonging,” as I am now working on a novel with Healer Parét as one of the main characters (he is about 20 years younger in the novel).
It’s also the first time I get *three* honorable mentions in one fell swoop. Really pleased.
