I just found out the audio version of my Aurora-nominated story, “No Sweeter Art” (Beneath Ceaseless Skies) appears to be a finalist for the 2015 Parsec Awards in the category of BEST SPECULATIVE FICTION STORY: SMALL CAST (SHORT FORM). The Parsec Awards celebrate the best of speculative fiction podcasting.
Apparently there were some late-discovered scoring and eligibility issues that required an updated list of finalists in my category, and as a result I am now a Parsec finalist. Here’s the new list.
Best Speculative Fiction Story: Small Cast (Short Form)
Short stories containing elements of science fiction, fantasy or horror where the storytelling uses narration as its primary means to convey scene and action and uses fewer than three people for the story presentation.
“A Story to Scare My Son” by R.D. Ovenfriend, The NoSleep Podcast
“O’Malley’s Media Storm” by V.C. Morrison, Seminar
SKALD by Aubrey Sitterson
“The Mummer Man” by Stan Studdens; Peter Joseph Lewis, narrator, The NoSleep Podcast
“No Sweeter Art” by Tony Pi, Beneath Ceaseless Skies

I believe the Parsec Awards will be announced September 5 at DragonCon.
