I sold short story “Aggro Radius” to Gamer Fantastic, an anthology edited by Martin Greenberg and Kerrie Hughes. I also received my contributor’s copy of the French edition of F&SF, containing “Titanium Mike à la rescousse!”
I sold short story “Midnight at the Center Court” to Witch Way to the Mall, an anthology edited by Esther Friesner.
I sold short story “Joy is the Serious Business of Heaven” to Realms of Fantasy (my third sale there).
“Titanium Mike Saves the Day” did not win the Nebula Award, but it will appear in the anthology Nebula Awards Showcase 2009.
I have been accepted into the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop! This is a NASA-funded “crash course” in modern astronomy for SF writers. Other attendees include Alma Alexander, Steven Gould, Deanna Hoak, Mary Robinette Kowal, Nancy Kress, Jay Lake, David Marusek, and Laura Mixon.
Three of my stories are now available for purchase at the Sony eBook store (for the Sony eBook Reader or free eBook Library software on your PC — not Mac, alas).
I have been accepted to the Taos Toolbox Writers’ Workshop! This two-week workshop (in Taos, New Mexico in June), taught by Walter Jon Williams and Kelly Link with special guest lecturer Stephen R. Donaldson, is a “graduate-level” workshop for writers who have already been to Clarion or Odyssey and/or have made some short fiction sales, and has an emphasis on the craft of the novel. It should be a lot of fun.
I sold novelette “The True Story of Merganther’s Run” to Aeon Speculative Fiction. Issue 12 of Aeon, including my story “Moonlight on the Carpet,” is available now. And “I Hold My Father’s Paws” got an Honorable Mention in Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, while “Primates” and “The Last McDougal’s” got Honorable Mentions in Year’s Best Science Fiction.
