First, a big congratulations to my friends who made the Nebula ballot – Vylar Kaftan, Chris Kastensmidt, Aliette de Bodard, J. Kathleen Cheney, Eric James Stone, Caroline Yoachim, and Mary Robinette Kowal. Good luck!
Also, congrats to Mike Rimar from my writing group The Stop-Watch Gang, who made his second pro sale. His story “Four Wizards and A Funeral” (what a great title!) will appear in Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show in the near future. I hope it’s the same issue as mine (April 2011). Mike workshopped the story in the group, and I knew it would sell. Way to go, Mike!
