i'll be me before the fall. you be you before this all came down.

So... while I was at ALA, I seem to have won a Locus Award. Best Collection, for Shoggoths in Bloom. *sparkles*

The complete list is here, and I'm thrilled both to be included and by the winners. (I totally voted for Aliette's story over my own. Don't tell.)

Congratulations, everybody!

In other news, two and a half reprints!


"The Death of Terrestrial Radio" is reprinted in the Alex Dally MacFarlane-edited Aliens: Recent Encounters, which has an utterly amazing ToC that I think brilliantly reflects the diversity of voices comprising the Rainbow Age of science fiction:

An Owomoyela – Frozen Voice
Ken Liu – The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species
Catherynne M. Valente – Golubash, or Wine-Blood-War-Elegy
Zen Cho – The Four Generations of Chang E

Ursula K. Le Guin – Seasons of the Ansarac

And I'm just as thrilled to say that both "In the House of Aryaman, a Lonely Signal Burns" and "The Wreck of the Charles Dexter Ward" (that latter with Sarah Monette) have been reprinted in the Gardner Dozois-edited Year's Best Science Fiction: Thirtieth Annual Collection. Here's the ToC for that:

Which, while a little less diverse, also does a pretty bang-up job of giving an overview of those writing in the field currently, both new and established. I am really looking forward to my copies!
