Today is the voting deadline for voting on the Nebula Awards. Being a proud member of the "I'll join the Procrastinator's Club later" club, I've put my voting off until the last minute. No, I don't know why. I made my picks weeks ago. I just never really got around to--you know--actually voting.
"Inside Job" got a mention in Rich Horton's year-end wrap-up of (part of) Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. I say "part of," because they apparently missed sending him a couple of issues. I'd like to think I'd have still gotten a nod even if he'd read the whole year, but who knows? I'll take what I can get.
Issue #42 is still available in print or PDF from Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine.
I should have mentioned earlier Maggie Jamison's review of Panverse One over at the revitalized Tangent Online. It's great to see TO up and about. Hopefully it will thrive. Dave Truesdale tells me he has a bunch of reviewers lined up from around the globe, which should provide a broad array of backgrounds and opinions.
Meanwhile, it looks like we'll be bidding a sad farewell to The Internet Review of Science Fiction. It's a shame, because I've really enjoyed IRoSF. Further, if Lois Tilton's online fiction review column doesn't find a new home, it will be a real loss to the SF market. There just aren't that many places that are reviewing the non-print publications anymore. Which is doubly strange, since the number of pro-rate online pubs is growing steadily, despite the loss of Jim Baen's Universe.
Issue #42 of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, with my short story "Inside Job" in it, is available for purchase online. For those of us who aren't in Australia, the magazine is available as a downloadable PDF for just A$4.95. That's like $4.56 in US dollars. A bargain!
I just noticed that there is now a Kindle edition of the "Panverse One" anthology. It's almost worth (almost, mind you) installing Kindle for PC to buy one and take a look. Since I'm a Sony Reader user (though the Barnes & Noble nook could change that), I'll wait until Dario hooks up with Smashwords or someone like that to get it into Sony's e-book store. Since Fictionwise has limited their publishing partnerships to publishers with 25 titles or more, no doubt part of the B&N acquisition, I won't hold my breath for "Panverse One" showing up on Fictionwise, where I currently get most the material I read on my Sony.
