Poem sale, and Hugo shoutouts

My poem “Peregrinations in Change and Fear,” which some of you have read in drafts as “untitled,” will be published in Poems for the Queer Revolution edited by Jude Sandelewski.

I have made two other sales which I cannot announce yet, but hopefully soon.

Hugo shoutouts:

Major congratulations to Ann Leckie (Ancillary Justice), Catherynne M. Valente (“Six-Gun Snow White”), Aliette de Bodard (“The Waiting Stars”), Sofia Samatar (“Selkie Stories are for Losers”), and John Chu (“The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere”) for their nominations in various fiction categories.

Congratulations to Sigrid Ellis and Michael Damian Thomas (Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It), Justin Landon and Jared Shurin (Speculative Fiction 2012: The Best Online Reviews, Essays and Commentary), and Jeff Vandermeer (Wonderbook) for their nominations in Best Related Work category.

Kudos to Ellen Datlow, Neil Clarke, and Liz Gorinsky for their Best Editor nominations, and to Galen Dara for Best Professional Artist (really, HURRAY!).

Congratulations to the editorial teams of Apex, Strange Horizons, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies – all beloved markets who also published my work, some repeatedly.

Major props to Liz Bourke and Foz Meadows, who were nominated in the Best Fan Writer category. It’s a great Fan Writer list this year.

Finally, in the Campbell Award for Best New Writer category, I am especially pleased to see Sofia Samatar, Wesley Chu, and Benjanun Sriduangkaew.

In 2013, my work has appeared in the following nominated markets: Apex (“Where the Ocean Falls into Itself“), Strange Horizons (“Teffeu: A Book from the Library at Ta’arona“), and Speculative Fiction 2012: The Best Online Reviews, Essays and Commentary (“Feminist SF/F: On Feminist Characters“). Cool.
