2010 in Review: Stories

Now that all of my stories for 2010 have been published, here’s a summary of where they appear. The links below go to subpages with links and reviews. It’s the most I’ve published in any single year, and the reviews for my stories have been very positive, so an excellent year overall.

Short Stories

“A Sweet Calling”Clarkesworld #44, May 2010 (online)
“The Gold Silkworm”Fantasy Magazine, December 13, 2010 (online)
“The Character of the Hound”The Dragon and the Stars, DAW Books, May 2010 (print)
“The Curse of Chimère”Beneath Ceaseless Skies #53, October 7, 2010 (online)
“Cygnet’s Shadow”On Spec #80, Spring 2010 (print)


“Night of the Manticore”Abyss & Apex #33, January 2010 (novelette, online)


“The Paragon Lure”Alembical 2, Paper Golem LLC, June 2010 (print)


“Silk and Shadow”The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies Online Magazine, Year One (online)

As it’s also award nomination season, some readers may also find this list useful as a reading guide. I’ve received very positive reviews for “A Sweet Calling” (in the short story category) and “The Paragon Lure” (in the novella category). The former is readily available on the web, and the latter is available to SFWA members in the discussion forums. Or, contact me if you prefer a different format. Thank you for your consideration.

Note: Some works are eligible for certain awards due to geographical restrictions. “The Paragon Lure” is ineligible for the Prix Aurora Borealis Award, and “Cygnet’s Shadow” is ineligible for the Nebula or Hugo Awards.

“The Gold Silkworm” Extra

Tattoos of Chinese phrases play an important role in “The Gold Silkworm”. I had originally intended to include them as visual aids, but the story worked without them. Also, it was difficult to embed Chinese fonts for electronic submissions to magazines. So, here they are instead as story extras.

“The Gold Silkworm” at Fantasy Magazine

“The Gold Silkworm” is live at Fantasy Magazine (December 13, 2010 issue). It’s another Strange Event of the Song Dynasty.

This might be a good time to announce that my new blog/website is also live, as is my Twitter account @wistling. I’ll be keeping my LiveJournal too.
