The Seasonal Embarrassment

I always feel awkward writing posts like this. Christmas itself can bring embarrassments enough of its own, but the season I’m referring to is actually awards season. Nebulas, BSFA, Goodreads, you know, that lot. I’m particularly embarrassed about doing this in 2013, as it has been a year which has produced some stunning SFF fiction. I’m still working out where to cast my own votes, especially when it comes to novels.

Even so, with virtual shuffling of feet and downcast eyes I’m just going to mention the two published pieces of mine which qualify for many of said awards:

Short story ‘Not the Territory’ in The Alchemy Book of Urban Mythic and the novel Queen of Nowhere, published by Gollancz.

There, done it. I’ll mooch off now.
