I’m thrilled to find myself on the list of Canopus-nominated works for the second time! Canopus is an award for excellence in interstellar writing and it’s given out by 100 Year Starship think tank. I’m in really good company, too. Last year I lost to Ken Liu, who is nominated as a translator in a different category. But this year I will most likely be losing to Alastair Reynolds or perhaps a number of other really awesome nominees. This is one of those “I’m definitely honored to be nominated” situations. 🙂
The nominated story is “Whom He May Devour” and it was published in Nautilus. You can read it for free by clicking on the link.
You can read the 2016-2017 Canopus nominees announcement press release here.
Another cool thing is that UFO1 is included in the SFWA Sci-Fi Storybundle along with all the other great books listed above.
This is my first experience with Storybundle but it’s a very cool model where you can pay what you want to get these books and you get to decide what portion goes to the authors and what to Storybundle itself, and whether a cut gets donated to SFWA. Check it out!
