Every year Rich Horton’s does a year end summary of all the fiction he has read in the year (how does he find the time to read all these magazines?!). He has recently posted his summary for On Spec 2009.
Last year he said he liked “A Ragman’s Vow” and this year he mentioned me in his “also good work from” category (for my story ‘From the Sea’), which pleased me. Rich Horton seems to have three tiers of mentions when reviewing — the “good work from” is his lowest tier, the middle tier is when he mentions the title of the story and a short blurb, and one story is usually mentioned as his favorite.
This year his favorite story was by Tony Pi — “Come-From-Aways”. This was a really good story… congrats Tony!
