Well, I fixed that continuity issue, and just emailed the corrections into the production manager and my editor, which means that All the Windwracked Stars is officially No Longer My Problem.

The next time I see it, it will be a real live book. (Well, there will be galleys, also.)

In other news, "Tideline" has been selected as the Best Short Story in the Asimov's Reader Awards. So huzzah for the battle robot!
