Molto Congrats. When I saw you'd been nominated four times (yes!), I did a vicarious fist pump. To have a work nominated speaks to the quality of that particular work; to have four nominations speaks to the ability of the writer. I'm glad you did an anthology of your short stories, for those of us who would be unable to chase them all down to read them. I hope you continue to do them. I loved "Shoggoths in Bloom" both as an anthology and as a story. However, I have to say, in all honesty, "Bone and Jewel Creatures" is still my most favorite of your shorter works. I'm still hoping for an anthology devoted entirely to the Abigail Irene stories, though, which I don't think have gotten the respect they deserve.
