A short story review here

So I got an interesting review on my Trust and Treachery story, “Live Free or Die.” The reviewer considered the story to stick too close to a couple of traditional tropes, but…she did comment that elements in the story reminded her of Ann Leckie’s writing in Ancillary Justice. Kind of a back-handed compliment…but you know what? I’ll take it, with a note to myself that yeah, I missed the theme I was really trying to hit with that story. Not bad, though. Any review where you even tangentally (no, I did NOT mean that as a pun ;->) earn a comparison to a Hugo winner is nice.–other-reviewsmenu-263/anthologies-reviewsmenu-107/2520-trust-and-treachery-tales-of-power-and-intrigue-ed-by-day-al-mohamed-a-meriah-crawford

Writer squee/brag time!

The lovely and talented Alma Alexander just announced that River, the anthology she recently edited, is a finalist for the Epic Award.  Read about it here.

I’m thrilled for Alma, because her vision for this anthology made it a lovely collection.  But I also have to admit that I’m thrilled because my story, “River-Kissed,” is part of the anthology.

So that pushed me over the top as to what I’ll be reading at Orycon this year (Friday, 4:00 pm-4:30 pm, Grant).  If you’re attending Orycon, come hear my contribution to this lovely anthology–and then check out Irene Radford’s reading on Sunday morning at 10:30 am–I wouldn’t be surprised if she read from her story for the anthology.
