My short story "London Calling" will be included in this year's Best Of British Science-Fiction anthology published by NewCon Press and edited by Donna Scott.

Interzone 262: Cover by Vincent Sammy

I was ploughing through my reading for the Hugos and the Nebulas when it occurred to me that I have one story eligible for this season myself: Dependent Assemblies which came out in January this year in Interzone 262.

Gardner Dozis at Locus - "atmospherically written"

SFRevu -  "A very good story to end this issue."


Drat ... real life got in the way


So ... I had some plans to read some #BlackSpecFic. But ... I'm reading for the nebula's this year and so have been snowed in with lots and lots of words. It's a lovely problem to have, but I think I'll have to shelve my original plans till the new year.

I'll follow this up with a Nebula related post in a few weeks or so as I come up with a nominees list.
