Awards Eligibility 2015

First, this post is late. I meant to write it sooner–I usually love reflecting back over the past year–but a death in my family slowed my writing to a terrible crawl. I’ve been avoiding much that I meant to do. But an email from Sunil Patel, an editor of Mothership Zeta, with whom I published a 2015 story, spurred me to go ahead with it. After all, late is better than never.

Writing-wise, 2015 was a good year. My biggest news: I signed with agent Ann Collette for my first novel. I also published 19 original stories, 5 reprints, and one essay for Lightspeed’s Queers Destroy Science Fiction! special issue.

I’m going to highlight the originals, all of which are eligible for Best Short Story. One of these stories, “Everything Beneath You,” is on the longlist for the British Science Fiction Association Awards; another Beneath Ceaseless Skies story, “A Careful Fire,” is on the SFWA Recommended Reading List. My humorous sex ghost story “Sleeping with Spirits” (see what I did there?) is on the Tangent Recommended Reading List.
