Another Honour...

Good news seems to come in bulk. :-)

While scrolling through nominations in the Horror Short Story category of the 2006 Preditors and Editors Readers' Poll, I discovered that my own story "The Midnight Sun", published in DemonSpawnII by Sybaritic Press, had been nominated. Of course, I was jubilated. I've been nominated for (and won) a number of fannish awards (such as those in yesterday's post), but this was my first nomination for any of my pro writing.

Anyway, after my exhileration died down (and after I'd notified everyone far and wide of my nomination), I pulled out the anthology for a good look at it (and to give it a few loving pats, to tell the truth), only to discover that it was published in 2005, not 2006. So, the story is not actually eligible. Bummer! Irregardless, I'm still thrilled just to have been nominated.

Maybe, next year, someone will nominate me properly for one of my storie in the soon-to-be-published DemonSpawn3, also from Sybaritic Press. The three stories that have been accepted for the horror/romance anthology are "Seesaw, Margery Daw...", "Mine!" and an expanded version of "Nevermore".
