Gorgon’s Lover Chosen Semifinalist in the Biennial Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Award

Here is this letter I received today, word-for-word:

The Gorgon’s Lover” was one of the 25 semifinalists. Since there were hundreds of submissions, so you should be very proud [that’s not a grammatical error on my part; that’s how the letter was written]. In fact, our Judge, fantasy author and editor Kij Johnson commented on the wonderful variety of talent among the semifinalists. Regrettably, we have only a limited number of pages and too many interesting pieces. That said, we wanted you to know that we thought you had submitted a fine piece of work. Thank you for helping to make our 2nd biennial award a success and supporting ROSEBUD’s conviction that excellent speculative fiction has a place in a serious, literary context. We hope to have a chance to see more of your work in the future.


Sincerely,
Roderick Clark, Ed.

Well, what can I say? I would have liked to have won, but still, it sure is nice to be recognized, so WOOHOO! and thanks, Roderick Clark; you’ll be hearing from me in the not too distant future.
