It’s official! My novella won the AnLab Award for 2021, as reported in Locus.   I’m so proud! I hope you all had a chance to read it. I struggled with this one—it took me two years to finish. Mostly it took till the character Patience appeared. Rath needed a good foil.

“Invasive Species” Is Finalist for AnLab Award

It’s true, it’s really true!  “Invasive Species,” which ran in the March/April issue of Analog, is a finalist for the 2021 AnLab Award for Best Novella.  Check it out here.  I couldn’t be prouder.  The winner will be announced at this year’s Nebula Conference.

And “The Aztec Eagle” is scheduled for a June release.  Things are going well.

Of course, I did get a rejection letter the other day on a short story.  But it was a very nice rejection letter.  “It’s a wonderful piece of writing with strong content on themes of poverty and an excellent YA voice.”  It just wasn’t right for that market.

The life of a writer.  Up, down. Up, down.
