So I’m late to the game with my 2015 wrap-up slash awards eligibility post. But here it is! I had four short stories appear in print last year:
“Indelible” (Feb issue of Clarkesworld) — Loss, identity, shape-shifting aliens. What more could you ask for?
“Very Long Conversations” (June issue of Analog) — Language, family, more aliens. On the Tangent Recommended Reading List.
“Holding the Ghosts” (March issue of Asimov’s) — Downloadable memories and emergent personalities.
“A Thousand Stones for Hesek” (spring issue of Space and Time) — Ocean-based societies and the end of the world.
I also wrote and sold a novelette called “Nothing but the Sky” which I’m excited to announce will appear in Beneath Ceaseless Skies later this year. And probably the biggest career news, of course, was that I signed with a wonderful agent, Jennifer Azantian, for to sell all the books. (Yes, ALL of them. Muahahahahah! And then, perhaps, world domination?)
Anyway, I’m still working through my own awards-related reading, but I’ll have some recommendations posted soon. 2015 was an amazing year for speculative fiction, especially novels! Keep up the good work, folks.
