I’ve been sitting on this news for about a week, and now that the latest issue of InterGalactic Medicine Show is out, I can finally brag. The following are the results of the IGMS Reader Poll this year:
1st place – “The Sound of Distant Thunder” by Mike Barretta
2nd place – “The Golem of Deneb Seven” by Alex Shvartsman
3rd place (tie) – “Until We Find Better Magic” by H.G. Parry
3rd place (tie) – “High-Tech Fairies and the Pandora Perplexity” by Alex Shvartsman
Last year, “Explaining Cthulhu to Grandma” came in 2nd in the poll, and I’m very excited to see an even better result this time around. I was told that I am the first author in the history of the poll to place two stories in the top 3!
The illustration for “High-Tech Fairies” by Andres Mossa won first place in the Interior Art category of the contest.
I’d say this is a good week 🙂
