"AMOR FUGIT" IN THE YEAR'S BEST SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY, 2011
So, there it is, the other good news I had that was making me want to vomit out of sheer nervousness. My story "Amor Fugit" has been selected for The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy, 2011 edition, edited by Rich Horton. The news is elsewhere on the internets now, so I feel okay announcing it here. I'm happy to report that I did not get run over or burst into flame in the meantime.
I'm incredibly excited. Of everything I've written so far, "Amor Fugit" is still my favorite story, the one I measure all my other ones against before they go out into the world (or don't), so I'm thrilled to find other people like it, too. And beyond that, I'm really honored that I get to be a part of this anthology. Look whose names are on the cover! Neil Gaiman! Yoon Ha Lee! Elizabeth Hand! Gene Wolfe!
I'm so grateful for all my friends and family who helped me get up the nerve to send this story out into the world, and to The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction for publishing it in their pages earlier this year. But most of all, I'm grateful for my husband Jeremy, who has endured my paralyzing bouts of self-doubt and numerous requests to read and re-read my stories with grace and very little desire to throttle me. Without him, I wouldn't have understood love well enough to write about it.
I'll post more info. about where to find the anthology as it becomes available (probably some time in the first half of the new year.)
