YEAR'S BEST SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY OUT TODAY
No novel update this week, but a piece of exciting news:
Rich Horton's Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy, 2011, came out today. My story, "Amor Fugit," which originally was published in the March/April edition of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, is reprinted in the anthology.
I haven't received my contributor's copies yet, so today at lunch, I broke down and drove over to the local big box bookstore to buy a copy. I know I'm acting like a huge dork who's never had a story in professional anthology before, but let's face it, that's exactly what I am. Maybe the more professional thing would be to sedately tell you about all the excellent fiction in the anthology (Amal El-Mohtar's "The Green Book" is spooky-wonderful, and I'm really excited about reading "Flower, Mercy, Needle, Chain" by Yoon Ha Lee), but in all honesty, I wish I could read this post to you this while jumping on a trampoline and screaming through an old-fashioned bullhorn.
Thanks to all of you for putting up with my dorkiness. I hope to make it worth your while!
